The Mission

The Canadian Red Cross mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world.

The Values

The actions and decisions of the Canadian Red Cross will be based upon:

  • Humanitarian values, as expressed in our Fundamental Principles;
  • Respect, dignity and inclusiveness.
  • Integrity, accountability, effectiveness, and transparency, and adaptability.
  • Quality and safety.

Our network is vast, but our approach is simple. All Red Cross programs and activities are guided by the Fundamental Principles of Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality. These principles allow us to provide help immediately to whoever needs it, wherever they are, whatever their race, political beliefs, religion, social status, or culture. [More…]

In Your Community

The Red Cross is there when Canadians need us most. Across Canada, we help build safer communities by providing local health services, water safety and first aid programs, education on the prevention of violence, bullying and abuse, and much more.

Whenever disasters strike – such as floods, wild fires, hurricanes, storms or house fires – the Canadian Red Cross is ready to help vulnerable communities. From building disaster resiliency to providing vital assistance to meet people’s basic needs, we’re there to give support thanks to our dedicated volunteers. [More…]
