December 2019

The District of Squamish was awarded a $4 million grant under Infrastructure Canada’s Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program to design and construct a new section of sea dike at Xwu’nekw Park in downtown Squamish. In accordance with the requirements of the grant funding, the District retained Kerr Wood Leidal Associates to complete a Climate Lens Resilience Assessment and used the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) Protocol to do so. The assessment considered how climate change may affect the project during construction and over the course of the dike service life.
