The Sixth Canadian Public Safety Interoperability Workshop aims to again bring together a broad base of public safety and emergency management practitioners to develop a mutual understanding of the key voice and data interoperability issues facing today's public safety sector. With a focus on information exchange, topic-specific discussion and interactive break-outs, the Sixth national workshop aims to support and promote the transfer of best practices and experience, and the development of a more unified approach to public safety interoperability across the country, between nations and internationally.

Once again delegates can expect to be "put to work" in extensive break-out sessions.  While some of these sessions are designed to continue the implementation of the Communications Interoperability Strategy for Canada, others will focus on providing support and assistance to regional delegates as they begin, or further, the development of local, regional, provincial and inter-provincial Communications Interoperability Plans. Additional break-outs will explore other aspects of the SAFECOM Interoperability Continuum such as creating governance models, SOPs, training and exercises and usage.

Delegates will come away with real-world insights, practical knowledge, and a common sense approach to moving forward. They will also be provided with numerous tools they can take home and begin working with immediately. The Workshop will also have hands-on sessions designed to help gain an understanding of, or work toward making progress on, key issues, including:

  • National and cross-border interoperability planning
  • Provincial, regional and local interoperability strategic planning
  • Interoperability and the challenge of governance
  • Trends in interoperability technology, including both voice and data related issues
  • Practical advice on running interoperability training & exercises
  • 700 MHz Broadband for Mission Critical Public Safety Data and related spectrum management issues 
  • Situational awareness, common/user defined operating pictures, GIS systems and blue force tracking
  • 3D In-Building Location and Tracking for Fire Fighters and public safety responders
  • Converging Mission Critical voice and data network
