Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters in Canada.

Are your home, and community, flood-ready? Here are three steps you can take now to prepare:

Learn about floods

Floods can happen in any region of Canada, in both urban and rural communities, from natural causes or failures of infrastructure.

Know the risks

Floods can damage your home and other property, including causing long-term health hazards from mould. And overland flooding is generally not covered by standard home insurance.

Be part of the solution

Talk to your insurer about your coverage, find out about programs and resources available in your community, and plan home projects that can help protect your property.
