The Canadian Journal of Emergency Management has partnered with York University to become the official journal of the York Emergency Mitigation, Engagement, Response, and Governance Institute (Y-EMERGE).

This partnership will advance research and practice in emergency management in Canada, leading to safer, more resilient, and more equitable communities.

Y-EMERGE builds on York’s exceptional expertise to develop, grow, and sustain transformative and multidisciplinary research and teaching in transformative disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness, response, and recovery. The institute exists to promote community-engaged scholarship, real-world and need-driven research, and evidence-based training to support current and future disaster and emergency management leaders across Canada and beyond.

These exciting changes will certainly enhance the journal’s ability to inform researchers and practitioners on Emergency Management in Canada.


With this partnership, we are pleased to share that Dr. Eric Kennedy will assume the role of Editor in Chief. Eric joined CJEM’s Board of Directors in July of 2022 and helped advance CJEM’s mission.
