Abstract
In 2009 the Federal Government, the Provinces and Territories agreed on a National Strategy and Action Plan for Critical Infrastructure (CI) [1, 2]. The purpose of this initiative was to strengthen the resilience of the Canadian CI though building partnerships, implementing all hazards risk management approaches, and advancing the timely sharing and protection of information among partners. The Strategy identified that CI was at risk from natural, intentional and accidental hazards and that the risk could be exacerbated by the complex system of interdependencies among CI, which can lead to cascading effects across borders and sectors. The action plan describes the implementation of the strategy which includes the establishment of sector networks and a cross sector forum as the basis for collaborative work and information sharing. Among several CI initiatives, Public Safety (PS) Canada supported a Canadian Safety and Security Program project to model CI interdependencies (CSSP-2012-TI-1142, Development of a National Critical Infrastructure Interdependency Model).
