2020 With YSSR

Check out our 2020 Year in Review page to see all of the things we accomplished!


Bring Them Home

York Sunbury Search and Rescue is a 100% volunteer, charitable organization on call 24/7, 365 days a year, to assist police agencies with missing or lost person incidents.

Support our FunDrive! We are collecting donations of clothing, household textiles, and small household goods at our drop off centre on Saturday, March 27.

Search & Rescue

When an individual is lost, police can call on us. Our organization is trained and equipped to deploy our members along with the necessary resources to manage search incidents and sustain search operations for multiple days if needed.

Prevention & Education

By delivering services like Project Lifesaver and AdventureSmart programs like Hug A Tree, which focus on the needs of those most at risk for wandering, we hope to reduce the frequency and severity of searches.

Community Involvement

Our team assists with public events including traffic marshalling for marathons and Harvest Jazz and Blues, and tending road closure barricades during flood season.


As a charitable volunteer organization, YSSR relies on the generous support of those in our community, and hosts a variety of fundraising events, including our annual pancake breakfast.
