Climate Adaptation will be critical as we move forward.
Intense rainfall events combined with aging municipal infrastructure, increased urbanization and a lack of flood protection measures at the household level have resulted in losses in billions of dollars for Canada’s insurance companies, governments, homeowners, landlords and tenants over the past decade. The Intact Centre has developed a variety of resources to help Canadians take action to reduce their home flood risk.
With the floods in BC we all know that there is risk for homes wherever we live in Canada.
Here is an immediate way residents can start to take action for their own home: 3-Steps-to-Home-Flood-Protection
