A Government of Canada Approach to Business Continuity Management - Incorporating BCM best practices into a unique operating environment

In recent years, federal organizations have experienced a range of disruptive events such as the pandemic, extreme weather events, a public order emergency, widespread technological outages, and supply-chain disruptions. These events have challenged Government of Canada (GC) resiliency and highlighted the imperative for robust and mature BCM programs. Public Safety’s Centre for Resiliency and Continuity Management (CRCM) is responsible for the Business Continuity Management (BCM) Lead Security Agency (LSA) role for the federal government.  As part of its mandate, the CRCM provides BCM leadership, expert advice, methodologies, tools, and training to federal institutions on how to develop and maintain BCM programs. This aims to enhance the state of preparedness and organizational resilience across the Government of Canada. To improve programs and practices, the CRCM launched a government-wide BCM renewal initiative in 2021-2022. In this presentation, the CRCM will outline the context of running a BCM program in the federal government, and provide insight in how to implement best practices given a unique policy and legislative landscape.
