Internal Task Force to address risks of flooding
The internal task force will consult with municipal, Indigenous and industry leaders to discuss how to better prepare for floods and respond to them when they happen. Engagement sessions will be held in the Ottawa on May 24.
A key commitment of the Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan is to undertake a provincial impact assessment to identify where and how climate change is likely to impact Ontario’s communities. The results from this assessment will provide decision makers with the data and information needed to better plan for more frequent extreme weather events such as flooding. Homeowners across Ontario can be assured the Government of Ontario is taking action to protect public safety by better planning for and mitigating the effects of flooding.
