This summer's flooding in Ontario and Alberta has highlighted the issue of urban flood damages, including basement flooding. They are a recurrent and growing issue for municipalities, insurers, and homeowners across Canada, with damages from urban flood events often totaling in the $10s and $100s of millions of dollars and few communities are immune.

Topics include:

  • Basement flooding: Lot-side risk reduction through voluntary retrofit programs, code interpretation and by-laws
  • Urban and basement flooding case studies in Winnipeg and Windsor
  • Flood reduction strategies in Ottawa
  • Reducing risk and building resiliency: The Credit River Watershed story
  • Assessing climate change risk to stormwater and wastewater infrastructure
  • Panel: Moving forward on urban flood risk reduction for new and existing homes and subdivisions
