Partners for Action (P4A) is an applied research network advancing flood resiliency in Canada in the face of a changing climate and extreme weather. P4A’s recent survey of 2,300 Canadian households demonstrated that flood risk awareness is low and threatens to stay that way, even in a changing climate.

  • Results of the public survey and workshop with the insurance industry and government - and what these results mean for you
  • Overview of the current state of flood risk management in Canada
  • Current and future initiatives needed to raise awareness and to foster proactive and collaborative approaches to make our communities more resilient to flood
