The Emergency Management Community of Practice
The Emergency Management Community of Practice (EMCoP) focuses on effective operational practices and key strategic issues related to emergency response and business continuity. EMCoP aims to be unique in the Canadian emergency management landscape by providing learning and sharing opportunities on topics put forward by its members.
In an environment where continuous response to emergencies (natural or otherwise) is becoming the norm, Canada’s emergency management ecosystem finds itself in great demand. EMCoP provides valuable networking, learning, and leadership development opportunities to enhance both management and operational continuity challenges.
