The way we do "business" is rapidly-evolving, so to remain relevent in today's changing world with new technology and media, we need to keep up with the pace - be that in the private weather sector or government sector (such as the CHC and the NHC). To deliver the best possible level of service to citizens and end-users of tropical cyclone forecast information requires building trusted relationships and partnerships where applicable.

This presentation will serve as a general overview of operational activities and developments at the Canadian Hurricane Center since the last AMS Tropical Conference in Jacksonville in 2012. I will discuss various aspects of our forecast operations and service including work on new forecast products, evolution of outreach activities, a brief summary of Canadian NWP, and key collaborations both domestic and international that are recognized as being important for enhancing the utility of tropical cyclone forecast information over various timescales.
