Ontario Conference & Workshop Proceedings:

Federal Floodplain Mapping Guidelines Workshop, Toronto

March 28, 2017

Workshop Presentations

The Federal Floodplain Mapping Guidelines workshop, hosted by CWRA on behalf of the Government of Canada, has been arranged in order to present and gather input regarding the recently developed Federal Floodplain Mapping Guidelines Series documents. The workshop aims to identify gaps in the published documents, as well as further opportunities for research going forward. Overall, it is intended to provide a forum for diverse members of the flood management community to collaborate toward the common goal of mitigating Canada’s costliest natural disaster: overland flooding.

Keynote speaker Francis Scarpaleggia MP  will open the workshop. Aside from being the current Chair of the National Liberal Caucus, Mr. Scarpaleggia has many years’ experience advocating for freshwater protection. He will be followed by speakers from Natural Resources and Public Safety Canada, who will provide brief overviews of the documents contained in Version 1.0 of the Federal Floodplain Mapping Guidelines Series and describe plans for future development. The afternoon sessions will then provide an opportunity for all participants to contribute to ongoing work by addressing three specific topics of relevance: climate change impacts on floodplain mapping, strategies for stakeholder outreach and gaps in the Version 1.0 Guidelines Series documents.

L'atelier portant sur les Guides d’orientation fédéraux sur la cartographie des plaines inondables, organisé par l’ACRS au nom du gouvernement du Canada, permettra à Ressources naturelles Canada (RNCan) et à Sécurité publique Canada (SP) de présenter et de recueillir des commentaires concernant les documents de la série : « Guides d’orientation fédéraux sur la cartographie des inondations ». L'atelier vise à identifier les lacunes dans les documents publiés, ainsi que d'autres possibilités d’approfondissement à venir. Dans l'ensemble, il vise à offrir un forum aux divers membres de la communauté de la gestion des inondations pour collaborer à l'objectif commun d'atténuer l’aléa le plus coûteux au Canada: l’inondation terrestre.

Francis Scarpaleggia, député et conférencier invité, fournira le discours d’introduction de l'atelier. En plus d'être le président actuel du Caucus libéral national, M. Scarpaleggia a de nombreuses années d'expérience en faveur de la protection des eaux douces. Sa présentation sera suivi par des conférencières de RNCan et SP qui fourniront un bref aperçu des documents contenus dans la version 1,0 de de la série : « Guides d’orientation fédéraux sure la cartographie des plaines inondables » et discuteront des plans d’approfondissement futur. Les séances de l'après-midi permettront à tous les participants de contribuer au travail en cours en abordant trois thèmes spécifiques de pertinence: les impacts du changement climatique sur la cartographie des zones inondables, les stratégies de sensibilisation des intervenants et les lacunes dans les documents existants.
