Flood resiliency

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.

  • 2 recommendations to be started next year

Some of the ways we have been building resilience to flooding since the 2013 flood:
