Resilience is "The ability of assets, networks and systems to anticipate, absorb, adapt to and rapidly recover from a disruptive event or shock." The frequency and intensity of disruptive events, stresses and shocks to communities across Canada is increasing. The sustainable development of the economy, society and the environment of Canadian communities depends on them being resilient to these changes and continuing to deliver services that attract business and deliver an enriching way of life for citizens. Emerging "smart communities technologies" offer attractive social and economic benefits for the development of Canadian communities at all scales, but very few of them address the resilience challenges they face. This webinar will examine what the resilience challenges to Canadian communities are and how municipalities can better understand them, intelligently incorporating new innovations in Smart Resilience technology that can make them Future-Ready, enabling their sustainable development.
