Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund Program

Words, Disaster Mitigation and Infrastructure Enhancement Initiative $32.1 million, with Canada and City of Windsor logos 

Communities across Canada have experienced – and will continue to experience – significant weather-related events or disasters triggered by climate change. The impacts of climate change are evident, including observed changes in air temperature, precipitation, snow and ice cover and others.

In 2018, the Government of Canada launched the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF), committing $2 billion over 10 years to invest in structural and natural infrastructure projects to increase the resilience of communities that are impacted by natural disasters triggered by climate change.

The DMAF program involves a series of projects, including studies, environmental assessments, road works, sewer works, stormwater management works and pumping station works to address areas in the city prone to flooding, drainage complications and overall storm sewer capacity issues.

The series of projects that make up the DMAF program are aimed at reducing the likelihood of future flooding in the city of Windsor. The program addresses geographical low-lying areas, areas with drainage complications, and areas with overall storm sewer capacity concerns.

A list of the individual projects that make up the DMAF program is below:
