I'm ready to reduce my home's flood risk.

I’m ready to learn about installing Natural Infrastructure where I live.

Thanks for your interest in installing Natural Infrastructure on your property. From the list below, please select the Natural Infrastructure you are interested in.

I want the Federal Government to help My Community install Natural Infrastructure

Trees, rain gardens, permeable pavement, green roofs, rain barrels, and community gardens: these examples of Natural Infrastructure do much more than just soak up the rain and reduce the harm caused by flooding, they:

  • create resilient communities (eg. by reducing the urban heat island effect and providing locally-grown food)
  • improve our mental well-being and physical health
  • provide habitat for pollinators and promoting urban biodiversity
  • create green jobs

Help harness the incredible power of Natural Infrastructure in your community. Please join your fellow Canadians and ask the Federal Government to invest in a program to help community members install Natural Infrastructure as part of the COVID Recovery.

On April 19th,  2021 the Federal Government announced a new $200 million Natural Infrastructure Fund. Please send a letter to the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, and the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities urging them to invest part of the new $200 million fund in community efforts to install Natural Infrastructure.

Please send a letter to the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, and the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities urging them to invest in urban-based Natural Infrastructure.

This Action is brought to you by Unflood Ontario, a network of groups led by Community Foundations, working together to “unflood Ontario” by educating and engaging the public about the impact of floods and the multiple benefits of Natural Infrastructure.
