Flood Mitigation Measures Assessment Community Advisory Group

Building resiliency to flooding is a top priority for The City. Since the 2013 flood, The City has repaired, restored and are recovering from devastating and costly flood damage. With much of the recovery well on its way, their focus is to ensure we build flood resilience by implementing the 27 recommendations of the Expert Management Panel on River Flood Mitigation.
Now, The City is advancing further by developing a comprehensive suite of mitigation measures for Calgary through a consultative, citizen-focused approach.

Wise decisions involve community input
In the upcoming months, The City will be meeting with citizens, stakeholder groups, community organizations and orders of government. The input gathered will be used to develop The City’s comprehensive suite of flood mitigation measures for the Bow and Elbow rivers.

Join the Community Advisory Group (CAG)

The City of Calgary is looking for community members from 2013 flood-affected and non-flood affected communities, business and interested representatives to participate in the Flood Mitigation Measures Assessment Community Advisory Group. The Community Advisory Group will provide input concerning flood mitigation measures to The City, who will then make recommendations for decisions by Council.
