Protecting Communities from Coastal Flooding

  • Investing $25 million over 10 years to proactively upgrade 60km of dykes and aboiteaux to protect communities from coastal flooding.
  • Consulting on the Coastal Protection Act to ensure that future construction is done in ways that protect our sensitive coastal ecosystems.

Communities across Nova Scotia are impacted by extreme weather and rising sea levels caused by climate change. We must adapt now to protect our roads, schools, farms, businesses, parks, and historic sites from its devastating effects.

That’s why our Liberal government has invested $25 million over 10 years to upgrade 60km of dykes and aboiteaux to protect communities from the impacts of coastal flooding. This proactive initiative to upgrade our infrastructure will mitigate flooding and strengthen the resilience of Nova Scotian communities. This will also protect our highly productive and valuable agricultural land, increasing food security.

We are also currently consulting on the Coastal Protection regulations. Coastal protection, rising sea-level and erosion are already causing issues in our coastal communities and are expected to worsen as we see increased impacts from climate change. We want to ensure that future construction is done in a safe and sustainable way to protect our sensitive coastal ecosystems. Consultations are ongoing and are expected to be completed this fall.
