For 20 years Disaster Forum has been the premier event series for emergency management professionals in Canada. By consistently providing outstanding education, practical skill-building and peer-to-peer networking opportunities, Disaster Forum has built a strong reputation as the go-to event in the risk management industry. DF, as we affectionately call it, is the place to connect with your peers, learn about the latest developments in risk management, and see some amazing technology. You won’t find a better time or place for capacity-building to protect your organization, whether it’s a company, a community group, a municipal, provincial or federal government, an NGO, a university, or a hospital.

At DF the best meets the best.

A New Offer

Talking to the DF community, we heard that what people value most about Disaster Forum is: great networking opportunities; world-class speakers on relevant topics; and practical knowledge and skills transfer that can be immediately applied. We also heard a desire to retain the best of what was offered in the multi-day conference format, but in a format that’s closer to home and with a shorter time commitment.

Now in response to demand, we are proud to expand the DF offer with a new series of shorter events, starting in Edmonton and Saskatoon!
