Multi-year funding will help Canadians adapt to, prepare for and mitigate the significant risks of flooding.

Co-operators has renewed its multi-year funding commitment to Partners for Action (P4A), a research initiative at the University of Waterloo that focuses on empowering Canadians to become flood resilient, with a three-year commitment of $500,000 towards program delivery and research.

"People, communities and municipalities have to be empowered to enact change in the places they live, where the risks are the greatest,” says Jean Andrey, Dean, Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo. “Our continuing partnership with Co-operators supports the heart of this work and allows us to build deeper, impactful connections across Canada.”
