Flooding in Canada


Every year, thousands of Canadians pay the emotional and financial costs associated with flooding. When our homes are at risk, our financial security is too.


​Canada needs continued federal leadership to create a cohesive National Action Plan on Flooding that:

  • Moves people out of harm’s way
  • Educates Canadians about flood risk
  • Invests in flood defences
  • Provides all Canadians with access to affordable insurance
  • Ends building on flood plains

Flooding now costs Canadians more than any other climate issue. Ask the candidates in your riding if their party’s election platform includes a flood action plan.
