Center for Research and Innovation in Civil Security (Centre-RISC)


The Centre RISC’s mission is to support innovation, practices, development and technology transfer of companies and Québec institutions and organizations in the civil security and emergency response sectors, while contributing to the enhancement of college education in those fields.

The mission of the Centre de recherche et d’innovation en sécurité civile (Centre RISC) is to introduce new training, technologies, practices, knowledge, innovations and ideas in order to reduce the negative impacts and increase the efficiency of those intervening in accidents. It also supports the various organizations in optimizing the preparation of their response and intervention in matters of civil security. The centre is attached to the Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy (CNDF) college, which is the only college level educational institution in Québec to offer a full range of programs in the various components of civil security.
