Federal Flood Mapping Guidelines Series
The Federal Flood Mapping Guidelines Series are resources to advance and standardize floodplain mapping projects and activities in Canada. These guidelines address each step of the flood mapping process and provide advice to individuals and organizations in Canada that need to understand and manage flood risks and their consequences to communities.
The Standards Council of Canada, Natural Resources Canada and Public Safety Canada are working together to develop some of these guidelines into National Standards of Canada.
