B.C. Floods

The B.C. floods and mudslides are shaping up to be the most expensive weather-related disaster in Canadian history. As Canada’s climate continues to warm, increasingly severe and frequent floods, wildfires and storms will put more and more communities and people at risk.


What governments can do to protect communities

  • Publish information on current and future extreme weather risks to inform infrastructure decisions
  • Take climate change into account to build resilient new infrastructure and adapt the infrastructure we already have
  • Bring an equity lens when making infrastructure decisions to make sure that the most vulnerable people and communities are protected
