National Disaster Mitigation Program Funding

In 2015, the Federal government established the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP), a five year, $200 million cost shared program to reduce the impacts of natural disasters on Canadians.

The NDMP is focused on flooding, and includes funding for:

  • Stream 1 - Risk assessments
  • Stream 2 - Flood mapping
  • Stream 3 - Mitigation planning
  • Stream 4a - Small scale structural works ( less than $3 Million)
  • Stream 4b - Non-structural mitigation works

The NDMP is merit based. The provinces and territories are required to apply and compete with each other for funding. To facilitate and prioritize proposals from our province, the British Columbia Disaster Mitigation Program (BCDMP) was initiated.

Submitting Proposals to the National Disaster Mitigation Program

Eligible entities interested in submitting project proposals should:

Note: Stream 2 Applicants must follow APEGBC’s Flood Mapping in BC professional practice guidelines (PDF) and proposals for LiDAR must follow the specifications for LiDAR for the Province of British Columbia (PDF).

Application Intake 4 Closed

Intake 4 projects approved by PSC will most likely be announced during the spring of 2018. Intake 5 is anticipated in 2018. Contact the EMBC Disaster Mitigation Program with any program questions or to be added to the email distribution list for future intake announcements.

The Community Emergency Preparedness Fund, administered by the Union of BC Municipalities, also includes funding streams for flood preparedness and mitigation. A complete list of grants available to local governments can be obtained from CivicInfo BC.
