Sandford Fleming Forum was established by the Centre for Resilience of Critical Infrastructure to address the understanding of resilience planning and operations. By engaging directly with the professional community of governments, clients, consultants and academia, the Sandford Fleming Forum is relevant, informative and cross disciplinary.
To promote knowledge sharing and understanding of the field, the Sandford Fleming Forum hosts meetings, sends digital newsletters and posts publications and papers online. The three distinct channels allow members of the community to stay current and informed.
To encourage dialogue and the sharing of information, the Chatham House Rule is invoked at these meetings. There are no commercial interests permitted at these events. The intent is that open and honest discussion can flow in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
If you have any questions about events or publications, please contact the Centre directly at email@example.com.

The Sandford Fleming Forum takes its name from, the Scottish-born Canadian engineer and inventor, Sir Sandford Fleming (1827 – 1915). Notably, Fleming was the first to propose standard time zones, was responsible for engineering the Canadian Pacific Railway, and was the founder of the Royal Canadian Institute. Following the same spirit of open professional discourse, the Forum takes its name from this leading light in Canadian infrastructure engineering and applied science.
