CIP Society ADVANTAGE LIVE: Overland Flood Mapping

ON Map
Date and Time: April 07, 2016 1 p.m. EST - 2:15 p.m. EST

Location: Webinar (at your computer)

Overland Flood Mapping

Up until recently, overland flooding was excluded on Canadian home insurance policies, with government programs kicking into place to cover damage where applicable. While Canada remained the only G8 country without an overarching insurance solution, the fault was on the unpredictibility of the risk and mitigating factors such as flood defenses, new construction in flood exposed areas, and pressures on aging infrastructure (such as sewer systems). Recent advancements in modelling technology have enabled companies to consolidate multiple data sources and generate stochastic mapping for better risk assessment. With storms and floods on the rise as a result of climate change, this may be the industry’s best chance to get ahead of the risk.

Join our webinar to learn about:

The history of overland flooding in Canada
The need for a national strategy

advancements in mapping technology

The cooperation strategy to mitigate flood risk between insurers, homeowners and different levels of government
