This is the agency in the US responsible for administering Transportation of Dangerous Goods regulations. This is a great resource for news and information.
CANUTEC was established in 1979 and is one of the major safety programs Transport Canada delivers to promote the safe movement of people and goods throughout Canada. They not only provide emergency response services like providing information about how to deal with an incident, but they can also help you with general TDG questions and are a great resource.
Similar to CANUTEC, but US based, they serve as a round-the-clock resource for obtaining immediate critical response information for incidents involving hazardous materials and dangerous goods.
This is a great site put together by the great people at the Canadian Association for Chemical Distributors (CACD). It’s an awesome site for hazard information about various dangerous goods and information for first responders.
You can find links here to pretty much everything you want to find, from information about TDG to, lists of first responders, to protective equipment. This is a great resource list.
