Report of the Auditor General of Canada. Chapter 6, : emergency management on reserves.: FA1-2013/2-6E-PDF

During the four fiscal years 2009–10 to 2012–13, the federal government spent at least $448 million supporting emergency management activities on reserves. This support was provided primarily by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada and Health Canada. We examined whether the departments adequately managed their support to emergency management activities on First Nations reserves. We focused on roles and responsibilities of the key parties involved in providing emergency management support, the design and delivery of the support, and monitoring and reporting on results. Our audit did not include a detailed review of any given emergency event, nor did it assess the adequacy of the federal support. The performance of non-federal organizations and First Nations was also excluded from the scope of our audit.
