Lessons learned in 2016 Cape Breton floods

In this closing keynote session, we will discuss 2016 Thanksgiving Day floods in Cape Breton. The damages caused by this disaster are estimated at over $15 million, and to date the province has received over 700 claims under the DFAA program.

  • What are some of the key learnings from this disaster?
  • What did the Cape Breton floods teach us about flood recovery best practice?
  • How will we respond to future floods, and are we better prepared now than we were before?
