Canada’s Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) was established in 2009 as a multi-stakeholder national mechanism that coordinates and advises on areas of priority requiring concerted action. It has national oversight and leadership and is comprised of more than 700 members representing local to national levels of governance, multiple sectors and organizations to provide a whole-of-society perspective to reducing risk.
Public Safety Canada hosts an Annual National Roundtable for Disaster Risk Reduction, which provides a valuable opportunity for discussion on implementing the Sendai Framework.
