Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland joined the Flood Damage Reduction Program in 1981 signing General and Mapping Agreements and two years later a Studies Agreement. Sixteen areas were mapped and designated under the program and remedial measures studies were carried out in four areas. The 20-year flood was used to designate the floodway and the 100-year flood to designate the flood fringe.
