The Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation has recently released their new report, Climate Change and the Preparedness of 16 Major Canadian Cities to Limit Flood Risk.

The findings of this study indicate that there has been no significant progress in terms of the flood preparedness of Canadian cities over the period 2015 to 2019/20 – the Canadian average score on flood preparedness has not changed and remains C+ as of 2020.

As climate change and the associated risk of flooding increases, stasis on flood preparedness, as indicated by an unchanged average score of C+ over the time frame of 2015 to 2019/20, is not acceptable. Canadian cities must therefore move much quicker to prepare for flood risk.
