The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials, Canada, Inc. is a voluntary, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement of public safety communications. It serves the people who supply, install and operate the Emergency Communications Systems used around the Country from coast to coast to coast. Members come from every type of public safety organization in the country, including 9-1-1, police, fire and emergency medical services as well as emergency management, disaster planning and federal search and rescue personnel.
Since its inaugural “regional” Canadian conference in 1988, APCO Canada has delivered an annual flagship event focused on providing its membership with valuable education, networking and learning opportunities to enhance their profession. With significant emphasis placed on professional development and growth, the annual APCO Canada Conference offers a unique forum for public-safety communication officials to take in relevant and often leading-edge education to support advanced knowledge and performance in their roles.
The opportunity to network at the event fosters many intangible benefits including problem-solving, perspective building, empathy, shared learning, and best practices. Since inception, the format of the event has grown throughout the years to now include a full tradeshow, an Annual Awards Gala, Annual General Meeting, a sophisticated sponsorship program, and three full days of industry leading educational and networking opportunities.
