OPEN HOUSE: Lake Ontario Shoreline Hazard Management Plan 

Flooding is Canada’s costliest and most frequent natural disaster. Communities are looking for solutions to mitigate the costs and damages caused by flooding to businesses and residences. 

On August 23rd, Member of Parliament for Northumberland—Peterborough South, Kim Rudd (seen at centre in the photo below) on behalf of the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, announced $150,000 in federal funding to the Province of Ontario to support updated flood mapping of the Lake Ontario shoreline under the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP). Additionally, Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority, Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority, and Lower Trent Region Conservation Authority are each contributing $57,500, which is being funded by the benefitting municipalities, in support of this project, for a total project value of $322,500.

Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Shoreline Landowners and Businesses 2019 High Water Impacts Questionnaire

Have you been impacted by high water levels along the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River shoreline in 2019? 

Wet conditions throughout the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence River basin in the spring of 2019 have resulted in record-high or near record-high water levels in each of the Great Lakes.  These high water level conditions have caused tremendous challenges (which are still ongoing in certain areas) for people living and working along the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence River shoreline including direct damages to their homes and valued property.
