Resilient-C is a free, online platform designed to help coastal communities in Canada connect with and learn from other communities that share similar hazard risks and profiles. Quickly determine from our growing database of communities those that share similar conditions and hazards to your own and review the planning and development actions they have taken to address coastal hazard risks and improve resilience. The Resilient-C platform recently expanded to include over 150 communities in British Columbia, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

Under the direction of Dr. Stephanie Chang at the University of British Columbia, the Resilient-C platform has grown from a pilot with 50 communities around the Salish Sea in BC to assess over 150 communities in four provinces against 25 quantitative and qualitative indicators to assess community similarity and hazards exposure. The platform’s database includes hundreds of actions these communities have initiated or implemented to address coastal and riverine flooding, earthquakes, tsunami, and coastal contaminant spills. The Resilient-C research team has classified each action by type, long-term strategy, and the stage of implementation, along with links directly to source documents.
