EMAS Canada

A Christian, charitable, NGO based in Canada and in Hong Kong, that sends out missions teams and partners with organizations overseas in healthcare initiatives. EMAS provides bursaries (financial assistance) for all healthcare students who are able to arrange an elective overseas or who join an EMAS Team.

Our History

In 1948, Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children decided to construct a new building with new equipment. When a group of local doctors heard this news, they banded together and requested that medical equipment from the old hospital be sent to under-resourced hospitals around the world. The administration approved the request, and the doctors formed EMAS to oversee the distribution of warehouses full of donated medical equipment.

70 years later, hundreds of Canadian healthcare professionals continue to band together every year on behalf of those in need. EMAS’ mandate has grown from equipment distribution to short-term medical mission trips and healthcare training, but the responsiveness to opportunities, a willingness to serve, and the underlying motivation to share God’s love with others remains constant.
