About CMAT:

Canadian Medical Assistance Teams (CMAT) is a Canadian-based grassroots disaster relief organization made up of volunteer health professionals and non-health volunteers who selflessly give their time and resources to assist and provide relief aid to the victims of natural and man-made disasters around the world.

CMAT has been one of the first teams to arrive at the scene of recent global emergencies, and has accumulated a database over one thousand skilled health care professionals from across Canada.

Please consider volunteering or donating to help us help the most vulnerable survivors of disasters.
