Founded in 1985, the Resilience Information Exchange (RIE) is a non-profit association of professionals dedicated to the exchange of information on all aspects of planning for an emergency or a disruption to normal operations. RIE's goal is to provide an accessible, informal, open forum for the exchange of information and knowledge related to the many variations of emergency preparedness. There are seven chapters across Canada. The RIE Ottawa Chapter was established in 1994.  

The presentations at our events focus on the following disciplines as they relate to Business Continuity Management: 

  • Business resumption planning
  • IT disaster recovery planning
  • Critical infrastructure protection
  • Crisis management
  • Crisis communications
  • Emergency management
  • Risk management
  • Information security
  • Physical security

RIE Ottawa operates on total revenues of less than $30,000 per year.
