Town of Canmore

Mountain Creek Hazard Mitigation

After the flooding of 2013, the Town of Canmore created a Mountain Creek Hazard Mitigation Program. The goal of the program is to install infrastructure that protects the community against these potential larger events that may occur in the future. Below you will find the Hazard & Risk Map, as well as information on Cougar Creek, other creeks and other creek resources.
