The magnitude and frequency of extreme weather events in North America has grown steadily over the last 15 years, culminating in 2013 with a record natural disaster insurable loss of $3 billion in Canada alone, due largely to major floods in Alberta and Ontario. To help better prepare for ongoing extreme weather events, this session will address two critical subjects. First, property and casualty insurers will profile the losses they are currently realizing due to extreme weather, and the actions that the sector believes must be addressed to sustain an insurable housing market. Second, industry and government leaders will recount their “real world” lessons with recent catastrophic floods, and share broadly applicable lessons that others should embrace to reduce vulnerability to extreme weather.
