The Flood Hazard Identification and Mapping Program (FHIMP) is a five-year program (2023–2028) to help Canadians better plan and prepare for floods. It is a partnership among the federal, provincial and territorial governments to complete flood hazard maps of high-risk areas in Canada and to make this flood hazard information accessible to all Canadians.

The FHIMP provides funding through several streams, including for Indigenous Traditional Knowledge. It aims to increase the uptake, accuracy, and relevance of flood hazard mapping in Indigenous communities. An additional goal is to facilitate knowledge exchange between Indigenous and scientific practices related to flood mapping. The funding will support developing tools to support communities, traditional knowledge studies, and rights-based engagement processes.

This Announcement of Opportunities is for projects that focus on the Indigenous Traditional Knowledge activity stream.

Core Activity Stream - Indigenous Traditional Knowledge

  • tools to support Indigenous participation in flood hazard mapping and emergency management
  • Traditional Knowledge studies to support flood hazard identification and mapping
