Manitoba EMO builds towards an ever more resilient province through applying a whole-of-government approach to all phases of emergency management.


Manitoba EMO works towards our vision through:

  • Providing risk-based information to government decision makers to ensure effective provincial preparedness for and response to disasters.
  • Building initiatives and programs that incentivize municipalities and the public to prepare for and mitigate against all hazards.
  • Maximizing federal, industry, and NGO collaboration with Manitoba and Manitobans to enhance recovery efforts.


  • Risk-Based Decision Making
  • Community-level Resiliency
  • Accurate Situational Awareness
  • Clear Roles and Responsibilities
  • Proactive Risk Reduction
  • Responsible Stewards of Public Resources
