The VIEP Conference Society was established in 2008.

The VIEP Conference Society was originally established to support Island communities in hosting a biennial conference aimed at providing learning opportunities for emergency volunteers and staff in the four pillars of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.  In 2017, the Society took on the responsibility of organizing the Conference. 

The VIEP Conference Society will host the 

2018 Vancouver Island Emergency Preparedness Conference

8, 9, 10 June 2018 at the University of Victoria.

The theme will be “The Disaster Season that Changed Our World Lessons Learned.” 


Everyone involved in Emergency Management is invited to register.
