Toward a Canadian National Water Strategy
2008 Final Report - Rob de Loe

Significant threats to water resources exist across Canada. Climate change is an emerging challenge in all parts of the country, but numerous long term problems also exist, with serious implications for Canada’s environment, economy and society. The process outlined in this report begins with the formation of a leadership team, comprised of people who can speak to the needs, concerns and interests of the various stakeholder groups identified by or in the report.

National Flood Guidelines Draft Document

Natural Resources Canada is aiming to have the next version out for CWRA review in late 2016. The 100-year flood design will remain policy. It will be, as has been the case, up to the discretion of the provinces and territories to design for larger events. A climate change directive policy element is being considered and will be guided by a board of experts.

The final product will be a series of 8 handbooks:
Canadian Flood Plain Mapping Framework  (Fall 2016)
Bibliography of Best Practices Related to Flood Mitigation  (Fall 2016)
Hydrologic and Hydraulics Procedures for Flood Plain Delineation  (Fall 2016)
Flood Plain Maps: Guidelines and Specifications (Fall 2016)
LiDAR Data Acquisition for Flood Mapping (Spring 2017)
Flood Risk Assessment  (Spring 2018)
Climate Change Impacts on Flood Modelling  (to be confirmed)
Canadian Risk-Based Land Use Planning Guide  (to be confirmed)

Thank you to all those who contributed feedback to the previous version. Those comments have been forwarded to NRCan and were gratefully accepted. Stay tuned for more updates and to find out how you can contribute.
