James Hoang
Account Security Director
Scotia Plaza

James Hoang has over 17 years of practical experience working in the Security and Life Safety Management industry, primarily within the City of Toronto financial core. He has managed multiple diverse facilities from residential to high rise office towers, such as Scotia Plaza, North American Centre and the State Street Financial building.

James currently manages the Fire & Life Safety program for one of Canada’s most preeminent bank towers representing over 2.5 million sq ft of real estate, with a population of 10,000 occupants, and an additional 70,000 visitors that passes through a hub of the City’s underground PATH network with access to several major transit systems.


The current pandemic has more than ever exemplified the importance of emergency planning in organizations. Building managers, who oversee their built environment, recognize the value of having a robust fire and emergency management program. At the minimum, these programs aim to meet the regulatory compliance requirements from the authorities having jurisdiction and at best, they are intended to provide foresight and guidance to an organization through emergencies. This presentation will provide a conceptual overview on the design and development of a fire and emergency management program; and using current, real-world examples on how these programs are implemented in one of Canada’s largest and iconic high rise commercial office buildings, Scotia Plaza, the headquarters of Scotiabank.
