– Brampton, Ontario – Ms. Ruby Sahota, Member of Parliament for Brampton
North, is proud to announce that our Government is further funding the Environmental
Assessment for the Downtown Brampton Riverwalk Flood Protection Project.
Flooding is Canada’s costliest and most frequent natural disaster. Recognizing this, Honourable
Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness has committed $1.5
million to Brampton under Public Safety Canada’s National Disaster Mitigation Program to
better plan for and protect against the effects of flooding of the Etobicoke Creek in Downtown
Brampton. This is in addition to an earlier $300,000 committed through Infrastructure Canada’s
Clean Water Wastewater Fund. Together, this funding will allow Brampton to complete an
Environmental Assessment that will propose a preferred alternative to eliminate the risk of
flooding.
“Weather-related natural disasters are getting more damaging and
more expensive. This is a threat not only to the safety of our city, but to our economic stability.
Through this funding, the Government of Canada is determined to reduce the impacts of flooding
from the Etobicoke Creek and build a safer and more resilient Brampton,” said MP Sahota.
The Government of Canada is committed to a disaster relief approach that will allow us to better
identify, plan for and reduce the impact of weather-related emergencies and natural disasters  on
Canadians.
