Investing for Impact

The Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) provides funding for projects and activities that meet requirements identified through risk and vulnerability assessments, as well as consultation with Communities of Practice, central agencies, and policy, operational and intelligence entities.

These projects allow public safety and security professionals to work with science and technology (S&T) experts to identify challenges, develop knowledge and tools, and provide advice that will help protect Canada, its people and institutions.

When making decisions about what projects and activities should be selected for CSSP support, it is important to consider how such endeavours will contribute to achieving the CSSP’s primary goal, which is to help Canada become more resilient to global and domestic safety and security threats, including natural disasters, major accidents, crime and terrorism. These decisions are further guided by a set of strategic and more specific outcomes. All final decisions surrounding project funding are governed by the CSSP’s Program Management Board and Steering Committee.

The CSSP funds and oversees projects and activities through four types of funding categories and nine different types of projects.
