Projects and Activities

The Canadian Safety and Security Program’s (CSSP) current portfolio includes close to two hundred projects and activities. These projects are led by either federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments, or academic institutions, through innovative federal contracting mechanisms managed by Public Works and Government Services Canada.

Current projects focus on the following priorities:

  • enhancing Canada's resilience to chemical, biological, radiological-nuclear and explosives threats;
  • protecting our borders;
  • enhancing the resiliency of Canada’s critical infrastructure and cyberspace; and
  • improving emergency response capabilities and interoperability.

Projects are funded through four categories and nine different types of projects.
