Contingency Planning: A Guide for Housing Providers

Contingency plans are an integral part of every organization’s overall risk management strategy.

An emergency plan does not have to be complex; in many cases a simple plan is sufficient. A basic but well-designed plan will help your staff better manage vital tasks in difficult times, accelerate and organize your response, reduce damage and create a more resilient social housing community.

To support Ontario social housing providers in effective risk management, HSC has partnered with Marsh Canada to develop a Contingency Plan Template and Planning Guide. Our goal is to provide a document that will help you to develop your own plan reflecting your unique community and local resources to enable you to respond to incidents with the best interests of your tenants as top of mind.
