"I have seen first-hand the loss and devastation catastrophic flooding can have on people, families and entire communities," said public safety minister Mike Farnworth.

"In order to reduce the effect of flooding on people and their livelihoods, we are investing now to support flood risk assessments, mitigation and planning work. These projects help create resiliency by improving the capacity of local government and First Nations to respond to and recover from severe flooding events."
