This technical report has been developed for use in Canada in support of guidelines for improving the flood resistance of existing buildings. Currently, there are no national recommendations for assessing, evaluating, and mitigating the flood risk to existing buildings. The guidance and recommendations provided in this document are intended to assist in identifying the risk of flooding to individual buildings, and to evaluate potential mitigation techniques for implementation.
