Flooding is considered to be the most expensive disaster in Canadian history.
Effects of climate change and sea level rise place the Lower Mainland at increasing risk of catastrophic floods from the Fraser River freshet to coastal storms and king tides.
Coast Salish communities are most at-risk of floods but many have not been included in flood mitigation projects.
The Emergency Planning Secretariat is an a-political organization created to support a coordinated mainland Coast Salish-led flood management strategy, from Yale to Tsawwassen to Squamish.
