TRCA Flood Management Service
A principal mandate of the TRCA is to reduce the risk to life and damage to property caused by flooding. We do this by providing local agencies and the public with notice, information and advice so that they can respond during severe rainfall events with the potential for flooding, and during flood related emergencies. The TRCA's Flood Management Service (FMS) has been developed in order to prepare and respond to our changing environment, the increasing needs of our municipal partners and the health and well being of our living city.

"Flooding Happens; it's only a matter of time!"
Mike Walters, Source Water Protection Manager, Integrated Watershed Management Director, Conservation Ontario
It's been less than two months since severe flooding devastated Calgary and much of southern Alberta and closer to home disrupted the lives of tens of thousands of Toronto area residents, stranding motorists and leaving homes without power. For most people who were not significantly affected, these events are already fading and becoming a distant memory. However, for those who lost loved ones, homes and their possession the loss and suffering continues as they try to return their lives to some semblance of normalcy.
These catastrophic events remind us of what could happen to countless people that continue to live within floodplains throughout Canada.
