Business Continuity Plan Exercise Templates
Exercising the Business Continuity Plan (BCP) for your ministry is a key step and an essential part of the Business Continuity Planning process within the Government of Alberta.
The exercise you have chosen to conduct may be planned within your ministry, by your BRP Team, or you may involve resources from Emergency Management Alberta, Business Continuity Programs to provide assistance in the exercise planning process.
To facilitate the exercise process, we have developed a template and a series of progressive exercise examples, we recommend for use in exercising the BCP for your Ministry. These exercises can be easily modified to increase the complexity and scope of the exercise you are planning to conduct.
