The Nature Force represents a new paradigm in watershed resiliency with an unparalleled insurance industry investment into natural infrastructure. Translating research and strategy into meaningful actions to help protect our communities and future is what makes us a powerful force in the fight against climate change and its potentially devastating impacts.
We’re planning projects using nature-based solutions in urban adjacent areas and upstream watersheds in priority regions including the Fraser Delta region of British Columbia, southern Ontario and southern Quebec.
Wetlands are powerful tools in the race to prepare our communities for the impacts of extreme weather. They act as a sponge to help manage significant water fluctuations while offering a host of ancillary benefits like providing critical habitat to hundreds of species of wildlife, sequestering carbon, and filtering contaminants from our watersheds
Over the course of this decade, the average cost of severe weather claims is expected to grow by 138% to $5 billion per year according to the Insurance Institute of Canada’s (IIC) 2020 report. The consequences of inaction to our communities is untenable
The Nature Force is an action-oriented climate resilience initiative funded by a collective of Property and Casualty (P&C) insurance companies in partnership with leading national non-profit conservation solutions provider Ducks Unlimited Canada.
