The British Columbia Real Estate Association has called for an update of floodplain maps in the province. The association says that just 21 per cent of BC communities and First Nations have access to floodplain maps that are less than 10 years old. Almost 31 per cent have no access to floodplain maps at all. BCREA says that the maps must be kept updated to reflect changes in climate, land development and the environment.
