This research project identified opportunities surrounding the incorporation of a major private sector partner into the emergency management framework. Using the hotel industry as the participant group, it answered the question: "Can the emergency management structure for Victoria, British Columbia, incorporate the hotel industry as a major private sector partner?" Quantitative methodologies were used to collect data from hotel industry executives. An online survey was used to investigate current levels of awareness and involvement, willingness regarding future participation, methods of representation, and beneficial resource contributions that could result. Findings include the following: The hotels are unaware and uninvolved in emergency management but a strong willingness to engage was demonstrated for the future. They have the ability and organization to be represented by their association and have resources to contribute to the collective effort at emergency management. Recommendations to address these challenges have been developed within the context of the research
