Canada's Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction

The Sixth Annual National Roundtable for Disaster Risk Reduction will be held from November 2-3, 2015 in Calgary, Alberta.

The Roundtable serves as an inclusive multi-sectoral consultative mechanism to advance disaster risk reduction in Canada.  This day and a half event is open to any interested participants, including: private sector; all-levels of government; non-governmental organizations; academia; and the general public.

This year's theme for the Roundtable, Charting the Future of Disaster Risk Reduction in Canada, encourages participants to reflect on shared responsibilities for DRR and to discuss the domestic implementation of the New Sendai Framework. Please consult the agenda for more information.

The Roundtable conference will be held at Calgary's Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Center. Registration is free of charge, but spaces are limited. If you are interested in attending, please submit your registration to the Secretariat by emailing: drr-rrc@ps-sp.gc.ca. Spaces are limited. When submitting your registration, please advise us of any dietary restrictions and allergies as soon as possible.

A site visit of the Calgary Emergency Operations Centre is being planned for the evening of November 2, 2015. This event will allow participants to see emergency management policy and decisions being implemented in the field by EM professionals and provide a field-level context to the Roundtable discussions. Please confirm your interest by October 16, 2015, as this event has very limited space.
