Floodplain Mapping - Ministry of Environment
A floodplain map delineates the area that can be expected to flood, on average, once every 200 years. This is called the 200-year flood. A 200-year flood can occur at any time in any given year; the indicated flood level may be exceeded; and portions of the floodplain can flood more frequently. Areas designated as floodplains by the federal and provincial governments are subject to development restrictions including flood-proofing measures. Visit this site for more information.
Integrated Flood Hazard Management - Ministry of Environment
This program goals are to reduce or prevent injury, human trauma and loss of life, and to minimize property damage during flooding events through its three components: emergency management; dike safety; and land use management.
