May 7, 2014 - Winnipeg, MB - Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada
The Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, announced today that all remaining 2011 Manitoba flood evacuees from Ebb and Flow First Nation will be returning home.
The Government of Canada invested approximately $8.7 million for 29 new homes and primary road work, which was completed in April.
As a result of these investments and the cooperation between our Government and the Ebb and Flow First Nation leadership, all flood evacuees will be back home in their community in the coming weeks.
The Government is also working with the province and First Nation governments to return flood evacuees from other Manitoba First Nations to their home communities.
