Business Continuity Plan

We’ve been busy developing a new online tool for business owners and entrepreneurs! This tool creates a personalized plan to prepare for and respond to unexpected disruptions like wildfires, floods, and pandemics.

The tool is presented by Colin O’Leary of O’Leary & Associates. Colin created the Economic Impact and Economic Recovery Work Plan from the Elephant Hill Wildfire in 2017 and has presented all over the province as a keynote speaker to talk to business owners about business continuity planning.

The purpose of this tool is to give business owners the ability to prepare for almost any disaster or disruption to their business.

Well-prepared businesses have proven to fare much better through disasters because they have already considered the possible impacts to their business and developed strategies ahead of time for dealing with them.

We encourage you to create your free profile and start building your own business continuity plan today.
