Community Futures Cowichan is hosting a free online Business Continuity Planning Workshop on April 27 from 8-10am. The workshop coincides with the launch of the Business Continuity Planning Tool, a free online resource that guides business owners through the creation of a custom plan for their business.
The past two years have been challenging for businesses of all sizes. British Columbia experienced multiple natural disasters on top of coping with the lingering effects of COVID-19 on the economy. Well-prepared businesses fare much better through disasters by considering the possible negative impacts to their business and developing mitigation strategies ahead of time.
Business Continuity Planning helps business owners identify risks to their business, core assets and functions, and how to deal with those risks. Join BC-based management consultant Colin O’Leary for a free workshop to help you get started.

Business owners can also access the free Business Continuity Planning Tool, which will guide them through the creation of a custom plan for their business.
“We’re excited to announce this free online tool that allows business owners to focus on what they can control when disaster strikes,” said Wendy McCulloch, Executive Director of Community Futures BC. “It will assist you to be prepared to respond and poised to recover. We highly recommend this tool because it has been proven to be straightforward to use and guides you easily through each step at your own pace. The future is uncertain and the best way to face this uncertainly is with a well-made plan.”
Businesses located in the Cowichan Valley and surrounding areas that are interested in learning more about the tool and helping their business prepare for disasters are encouraged to reach out to the Community Futures Cowichan office. For more information, please contact:
