Background Information

Public Safety Canada (PS) plays a key role in discharging the Government's fundamental responsibility for the safety and security of its citizens. The Minister of Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada is responsible for the Department. Legislation governing the Department sets out three essential roles: (i) support the Minister's responsibility for all matters related to public safety and emergency management not assigned to another federal organization; (ii) exercise leadership at the national level for national security and emergency preparedness; and (iii) support the Minister's responsibility for the coordination of Public Safety's Portfolio entities and for setting their strategic priorities.

In March 2017, the Government of Canada, through the proposed Community Heroes Initiative introduced the Public Safety Officer Grant Program. The objective of this Grant Program is to recognize the service and sacrifice of Canadas police officers, firefighters and paramedics who die in the line of duty, including deaths resulting from occupational illnesses or mental health issues (i.e. suicide), with a grant payment to eligible recipients.

The Public Safety Officer Grant Program is expected to contribute to Public Safety Canadas strategic outcome and core mandate, of a secure and resilient Canada by recognizing and supporting the families of those sacrifices of public safety officers who die as a result of their duties.
