Flood Protection

BCREA’s Position on Flood Protection

Flooding poses catastrophic risks to BC’s economic vitality, safety, environment, property owners and communities. BCREA’s flood protection work focuses on floodplain maps, a strong role for the provincial government and education for REALTORS® and their clients.

BCREA Recommends the Provincial Government:

  • Take responsibility for floodplain mapping, with maps being updated every ten years.
  • Expand the scope of the Flood Protection Program to include technical studies.
  • Update and review the Provincial Guidelines annually, and provide advice for local governments dealing with multi-jurisdictional situations.
