Our interdisciplinary research team have worked extensively together on risk analysis and governance, critical infrastructure protection, and media issues over the last several years. As a team, we have been funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Canada School of Public Service and Public Safety Canada.

The CIP Initiative is a hub for citizens, industry, NGOs and governments to engage with questions and ideas about the management of Canada’s critical assets.
This project acknowledges shared ownership and responsibility of Canada’s critical infrastructure and seeks to enhance collaboration between citizens, industry, NGOs, academe, government at all levels and international partners on questions concerning its management. We aim to enrich discussion about the complexity of infrastructure and the holistic approaches necessary to make it more secure and resilient.
