Flooding Claim – Ontario (Trent Canal)

The Challenge
In 1818, the Mississauga peoples ceded a million acres of land but retained islands in local rivers and lakes for the use of the First Nations communities. However, with the development of what is now the Trent Canal, water levels were raised, and one-third of that land was flooded. Our work was to estimate loss of value on behalf of the First Nations and Canada arising from the flooding and damage to approximately 10,000 ac. of islands. The principle challenge was to complete separate valuations for three different dates and to work with a large number of islands (1,534) with a significant range in size and location.

The result
A settlement was achieved.
