Home Flood Protection

AET provides Home Flood Protection Assessment services to residents across Canada with the goal of helping homeowners reduce their risk of basement flooding and reduce damage in the event of a flood.

From 2017-2018 AET delivered over 500 Home Flood Protection Assessments In Ontario and Saskatchewan on behalf of the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo. The goal of the assessments is to help homeowners reduce their risk of basement flooding and to reduce damage in the event of a flood. In 2019 AET secured a license from the University of Waterloo to provide Home Flood Protection Assessment services to residents across Canada.

In 2021, AET completed a research paper discussing lot-level flooding and what Canadians can do to arm themselves against the rising waters and rainfalls. You can download the free report here.
