Call for Expression of Interest for Emergency Facilities Management Human Resource Listing Service

Emergent situations occur all the time in Canadian Healthcare Institutions, yet maintaining Business Continuity is essential and could be compromised by the unavailability of experienced human resources.  Particularly in the context of a local disaster situation, be it natural, man-made, or pandemic in nature.

There are also situations arising where health care facilities that are heavily involved in project work need temporary assistance, and specific knowledge and skills, to help them see the projects through to completion.
