ABOUT US

1033 is the radio code for "help me quick" or "emergency." The name was a natural fit for what our network does: we are a collective of Canadian emergency and business continuity management professionals who provide consultancy and advisory services. Our goal is to increase our clients' resiliency and response capabilities.

 

Our team members have honed their unique resiliency-building methodologies for years and across several industries through our individual practices.
