The Infrastructure Adaptation Program (IAP) helps communities across Canada to reduce their risk of flooding through two main areas of focus:
Flood-Resilient Community Design
- Developing a national standard for building new flood-resilient residential communities.
- Click here for more information about the program and our collaboration with the Standards Council of Canada.
Natural Infrastructure Preservation
- Quantifying the economic value of natural infrastructure preservation to limit flood risk.
