Make Informed Decisions When  Renting in Toronto

What you need to know about renting in a Floodplain

Floodplains are areas of the city that are likely to see rising water during storm events now and into the future as we experience the greater effects of climate change. While some of these areas may never flood, and in some cases houses have protections installed to prevent flood damage (Such as back-flow protection valves and sump pumps), knowing that the house is in an area that might experience flooding is important information you should have when making a decision about where to live.
