The New Climate Reality

We will help people and communities deal with the realities of increased climate-related risks and disasters.

Canadians know all too well that a changing climate comes with real risks to our safety, to our homes, and to our ability to make ends meet.

To help people get ready for climate risks and realities, we will move forward with programs that help protect against some of the worst effects of climate change. We will:

  • protect homeowners who are at high risk of flooding and don’t have adequate insurance protection, by creating a low-cost national flood insurance program;
  • help Canadians better understand the risks they face when they buy a home, by working with provinces and territories to complete all flood maps in Canada; and
  • develop a national action plan to assist homeowners with potential relocation for those at the highest risk of repeat flooding.
