The Association of Canadian Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive Technicians (ACCT) is a member driven organization consisting of CBRNE response trained Firefighters, Police Officers and Paramedics from across Canada, speaking a common voice. Since 2007, the association has grown with graduates of the national CBRNE training program and similar programs devoted to enhancing skills, all hazard approaches, and an integrated, interoperable response to remediate terrorist events.

The goal of the Association is to provide a vehicle for communication amongst CBRNE technicians in Canada.

Through active participation of our members, the Association strives to:

  • Foster responder safety, preparedness and mitigation of CBRNE incidents throughout Canada
  • Provide leadership and expertise in the development and management of joint Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) first responder teams
  • Serve as a national resource for CBRNE information regarding safe response practices, case studies, training opportunities and technological initiatives
  • Advance 'best practices' through strategic partnerships with advisory groups, and
  • Act as a national voice for CBRNE responders with all levels of government.

The Association of Canadian CBRNE Technicians supports the work done by the Canadian Police Research Center and welcomes the advancement of a Canadian CBRNE Recommended Equipment List (REL) to standardize tactics and equipment for Emergency Responders across Canada and has been a partner in the Recommended Equipment List (REL) project from the beginning.
