History

Centennial College, EMPSI is proud to be the successor to the dynamic legacy of the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness (CCEP).  It is a privilege to steward the Annual Canadian Emergency Management and Business Continuity Awards.

in 2013, after 20 years as Canada's leading advocate for disaster resilience, the CCEP passed the torch to a new champion advocating their legacy, the Emergency Management and Public Safety Institute (EMPSI) of Centennial College.

EMPSI is committed to preserving the centre's emergency management and business continuity awards and are excited by this opportunity to integrate CCEP's body of work through successive generations of professionals, in the best interests of our communities.
