Established in 1996 with Canadian Foreign Affairs funding, CANADEM is a not-for-profit Canadian agency dedicated to advancing international peace and security through the rapid mobilisation and mission management of experts committed to international service. With an overall general roster of 50,000 experienced international and Canadian experts, CANADEM end-users include UN Agencies, other inter-governmental organisations, the Canadian, UK and other governments and non-governmental entities of all kinds.
