Council of the Haida Nation – Places of Refuge Exercise

Nuka Research facilitated the development and execution of a virtual Places of Refuge exercise which was sited near Haida Gwaii. The exercise was developed at the request of the Council of the Haida Nation and Transport Canada. It involved over 60 participants from 14 organizations receiving training on the Places of Refuge Contingency Plan, Haida Gwaii Annex, and other relevant topics, and then responding to a simulated cargo ship emergency in early October 2020. The exercise was successful and resulted in many lessons learned.
