Abstract
In the fall of 2001, the federal science and technology (S&T) community worked together, with the national security, intelligence and First Responder communities, to propose a model for ensuring a coordinated approach to terrorist threats. Through their cooperation, a $170M five-year initiative to significantly enhance Canada’s capacity to deal with potential chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats to public security was announced in Budget 2001 as part of the Canadian government’s comprehensive $7.7B security package. The CBRN Research and Technology Initiative (CRTI) was launched on May 10, 2002 as a horizontal emergency preparedness program.
