From a national to community level, Canadians are highly dependent on critical infrastructure. Increasing the resilience of our critical infrastructure is a core requirement for building resilience at all levels of society.
For 2018, speakers and delegates focused on building resilience from an all-hazards perspective for a range of critical infrastructure, including transportation, water, telecommunications, government, and energy. The discussion was framed within the context of case studies from recent emergencies, including the impact on critical infrastructure from the floods that occurred in Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia, and the 2017 wildfire season in Canada.
The experts at this event covered a broad range of issues, including: what contributes to critical infrastructure resilience in the fact of a major disaster; the complex interdependencies in modern critical infrastructure; and the challenges of rebuilding a community and its infrastructure.
We’d like to thank our generous sponsors for their contribution to this event.
