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 the lead, working with local and federal governments, to ensure floodplain maps are updated and remain current.
  • Develop guidelines and specifications for the development of floodplain maps.
  • Ensure senior government funding programs for flood mitigation cover technical studies, such as floodplain maps.
