Friday will signal the first step towards looking at ways to prevent future flooding in Muskoka.
Premier Doug Ford says they are making good on a pledge to create an internal task force that will hear directly from people in flood zones.
The task force will consult with municipal, Indigenous and industry leaders to discuss how to better prepare for floods and respond to them when they occur.
Engagement sessions will be held in the Muskoka region on May 17th.
MNR Minister John Yakabuski says the government's number one priority is public safety and the protection of communities and private property.
