Disaster Forum is Canada’s premier event for emergency/crisis management and business continuity professionals to discuss and analyze best practices, tools, and support for the community of practice.
Disaster Forum 2023 is now SOLD OUT! Check back for information regarding Disaster Forum 2024.
Disaster Forum represents a renewed opportunity for emergency management and business continuity professionals and practitioners from across Canada to connect, share and learn from one another. Previously held in Alberta between 1998 and 2018 with the purpose of promoting professionalism in Emergency Management, Disaster Forum included participation from industry, government, and non-governmental organizations. With this year’s re-launch, we are pleased to continue the legacy of programs filled with excellent speakers – presenting real life experience with lessons learned and applied – as well as high-value networking opportunities. Join us over two and a half days at the beautiful Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel to meet and learn from other Emergency Management and Business Continuity professionals.
