Flooding in Calgary

Flooding can occur at any time with little to no warning. The period from May 15 to July 15 is when we are most likely to experience flooding. Historically, this is when we experience our largest rainfalls. Understand, prepare and stay informed by knowing your flood ​risk, checking the flood maps, and preparing for flood conditions.

Flood Recovery

The City is committed to making Calgary a safe, flood resilient community. The 2013 flood caused significant social and economic disruption and unprecedented damages. The road from recovery to resiliency is a complex, long term process over many years with short, medium and long term milestones. See how we've recovered from the 2013 flood and continue to build a stronger Calgary.
