Annual National Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction
Canada's Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction will be hosting the Ninth Annual National Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction in Vancouver, British Columbia on October 29, 2018. This year's theme for the Roundtable, Advancing and Empowering Disaster Risk Reduction in Canada, encourages participants to engage in a dialogue to build resilience and advance cross-sector collaboration. The Canadian Risk and Hazard Network's (CRHNet) Annual Symposium 2018, in addition to the 2018 Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity (EPBC) Conference, will follow at the same location from October 30 to November 1, 2018.
The Roundtable serves as an inclusive multi-sectoral consultative mechanism to advance disaster risk reduction in Canada. This event is free of charge and open to all interested participants, including: the private sector, all levels of government, Indigenous peoples, non-governmental organizations, academia and the general public.
We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver!
The Eighth Annual National Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction took place on October 23-24, 2017 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The report for this event will be available shortly. Reports of previous Roundtables are also available.
