About DRIE

The Disaster Recovery Information Exchange (DRIE) is a non-profit association of professionals dedicated to the exchange of information on all aspects of planning for an emergency or a disruption to normal operations. DRIE's goal is to provide an accessible, informal, open forum for the exchange of information and knowledge related to the many variations of emergency preparedness.

At our quarterly meetings we have presentations on many of the following topics:

  • Disaster recovery planning;
  • Business resumption planning;
  • Contingency planning;
  • Crisis management;
  • Crisis communications;
  • Emergency response; and
  • Risk and business impact assessment.

Become a Member

Membership fees are tax deductible as dues to a professional association, if paid by an individual rather than a company or organization. For more information, go to Join DRIE Toronto.

DRIE Toronto is a non-profit organization with total revenues of less than $40,000 per year.

Meeting Schedule

DRIE meetings are an excellent forum to network with other business continuity, disaster recovery and emergency management planners in an informal and relaxed environment. Meetings are held QUARTERLY, usually on a Tuesday, in the months of March, June, September and December (actual dates dependent on venue availability). The December meeting is followed by a wine and cheese reception that is sponsored by Sungard Availability Services, one of our Gold Sponsors.

Meetings are usually held in the afternoon and feature activities such as speakers, panel discussions and vendor presentations. After each meeting, the presentations are placed on our website with presentations from the most recent meeting accessible to everyone and previous presentations in the File Archive of the Members Area.

Please see our Calendar of Events for more information on the dates of upcoming events. Use the Events link to find general event registration information.


DRIE Toronto is leading a cross-discipline project, the Greater Toronto Incident Management Exchange (GTIME), to examine best practices in large-scale disaster management in municipalities and to organize associated exercises. The project will include reviews of similar exercises in other jurisdictions, existing Toronto exercises and the degree of integration among such exercises.

GTIME's mission is to help ensure that any impacted government and business organization recovers from a wide-scale business disruption or disastrous event in the most efficient, effective, expeditious and caring way possible. Participants will partner to coordinate emergency management and business continuity response and resumption, with an emphasis on business continuity.
