Manitoba announces relief program for residents impacted by spring floods

The Manitoba government is providing financial assistance to people, cities, businesses and farmers that have been impacted by the spring floods this year.

A Disaster Financial Assistance Program is being launched to help people recover losses that are not insurable.

“We continue to work with local authorities on response efforts and a program will be available to assess damages and provide assistance for those who need it,” said Doyle Piwniuk, the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, in a news release.

Manitobans are encouraged to review their insurance coverage before applying for assistance as events like sewer backups are not covered.

More details to come.
