Disaster preparedness for businesses

Insurance Bureau of Canada is pleased to introduce a free online resource to improve disaster preparedness and insurance literacy for Canadian businesses.  These resources can help businesses prepare now for the unexpected. A crisis can threaten an organization in a multitude of tangible and intangible ways. Following the best practices in risk management can mean the difference between recovery and bankruptcy. 


The Business Continuity Diagnostic is an online tool to help businesses understand and manage the risks they are facing. 

Get started! Take the diagnostic.


Chambers of Commerce can also access free tools to support disaster preparedness within their local business communities. Request access here to build a localized Business Continuity Handbook and a guide to create a Emergency Business Contact Database.   

Together, these resources work to encourage Chambers of Commerce to support disaster preparedness and insurance literacy for their local business community, and to support businesses in getting prepared for disasters.
