Our Mission

Our Objectives

The Canadian Search Dog Association is a provincial, non-profit group of dedicated individuals who volunteer their time, energy, and resources to help carry out the following objectives:

  • To generate a group of trained search workers and trained search dogs to aid the RCMP and other authorized tasking agencies in their search for lost or missing persons and/or evidence required by such agencies.
  • To supply these civilian workers and their dogs with necessary resources to enable them to provide optimum assistance to the tasking agency in their search efforts.
  • To operate a province-wide organization to coordinate and develop these services.

Our primary goal is to help save lives.

We do this at no cost to requesting organizations or the communities we serve. Specially trained teams of dogs and handlers undergo rigorous annual certification testing and ongoing training in order to maintain their status as an active team ready to respond 24 hours a day.
