Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – The province is providing disaster financial assistance for three high water events caused by weather earlier this year in Manitoba.

“High water issues started in the spring and the response focused on the Red River Valley,” said infrastructure minister Ron Schuler. “Excessive rain events hit two areas of the province in early June and then again at the end of June into early July, creating overland flooding issues. We are able to provide disaster financial assistance programs for all three.”

Schuler says Manitobans should always check their insurance policies first before considering a disaster financial assistance application as a last resort.

The application deadline for local authorities and those in the private sector is December 10th
