Our Programs

The CCISF has spread it's wings and are looking to support our front line responders the best way we can! Join us in our fight! 

 Camp F.A.C.E.S

The Canadian Critical Incident Stress Foundation is honoured to announce the first support camp for families and children of fallen Emergency Service workers. As a national organization, the Canadian Critical Incident Stress Foundation recognizes the need not only to support our active duty Emergency personnel but to also support and never forget the families and children of those members that have made the ultimate sacrifice.


Camp F.A.C.E.S. aims to provide families who have suffered this tragic loss the opportunities to be with others who have experienced similar loss. With trained personnel and mental health oversight, these families will have the opportunity to experience some normalcy all while developing lifelong friendships.


Our commitment is to continue to support the families of Emergency personnel living with PTSD and to support those suffering through their loss

Education Bursary

The Canadian Critical Incident Stress Foundation is proud to announce the Canadian Congress bursary fund! The CCISF recognizes that there are many individuals that are unable to attend the Canadian Critical Incident Stress Congress due to financial constraints. It is important to us that those individuals have the opportunity to attend the Canadian Critical Incident Stress Congress and are thrilled to announce that we will now offer bursary opportunities.

  We believe that through this fund, we can continue to increase the opportunity for this vital training for many deserving individuals. We are excited to announce that we will be providing 5 scholarship opportunities to attend the 2016 Canadian Critical Incident Stress Congress, in Niagara Falls Ontario.

Please note: Any bursary awarded will be applied directly to the registration costs for the training and do not include airfare or lodging.  TO APPLY PLEASE CLICK HERE
