Manitoba 2011 Flood Recovery


In 2011, southern Manitoba had one of the most severe and extensive floods on record. This required an emergency response, including in areas where flooding was never experienced before. In total, 26 First Nations in Manitoba were affected by 2011 flooding and there were evacuations from 18 First Nation communities.

Together with First Nations and the Province of Manitoba, the Government of Canada is working towards a recovery that will see all residents returned to safe, secure homes or permanent long-term accommodation in strong, resilient communities. Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada is also continuing discussions with the provincial government to seek their involvement in supporting emergency management in Manitoba First Nations.
