CARES Niagara provides volunteer air and ground search and rescue services in Ontario as well as in Quebec as required.

CASARA Niagara Zone 11


CASARA Niagara is a founding member of the national Civil Air Search and Rescue Association. Consisting of approximately 30 members CASARA Niagara volunteers stand trained and ready to respond to calls for help 24/7 365 days a year anywhere we are required. Although our usual area of coverage is Southern Ontario we can and do deploy all over Ontario and Quebec as needed. 

Our mandate is saving lives. This might mean but is certainly not limited to searching for overdue boaters with our aircraft, searching Northern Ontario wilderness for missing aircraft and the people on board or deploying aircraft, ground and drone resources to search for boaters, swimmers or anyone missing on the great lakes. We provide a service that we hope no one requires, but if and when they do we pride ourselves on being there to help in the most urgent times of need.

We work closely with our partners in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Canadian Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary as well as Police Forces and other local agencies.

Some of our funding is provided by the Department of National Defense but much of our operating budget must be provided for by donations from members and supporters. Your tax-deductible donations help cover expenses such as operating and maintaining our Search and Rescue equipped aircraft, costs associated with our Headquarters and training facility at the Niagara District Airport and keeping our Mobile Command unit on the road and ready to respond to calls. 

We depend on donors such as yourself to keep us on the road and in the air "That Other's May Live"
