2 2013, the year of the costliest natural disaster in Canadian history, was also a record year in Canada for weather-related insured losses. The Insurance Bureau of Canada reported its members saw a record total of $3.2 billion in severe weather-related insured losses in 2013 — after four years in a row in which natural disaster-related losses topped $1 billion. “Canadian communities are seeing more severe weather, especially more intense rainfall. This overburdens our sewer and stormwater infrastructure, resulting in more sewer backups in homes and businesses,” Don Forgeron, IBC From an FCM Report, 2006
