OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/05/14 -- The Government of Canada is providing support to Manitobans in response to flooding in the province. A formal request for assistance was made by the Government of Manitoba on July 4th.
The Government Operations Centre is working with the Manitoba Emergency Measures Organization and federal partners to determine the needs of the province as the situation unfolds. Based on this assessment federal organizations will contribute available resources to flood response. Additionally the Canadian Armed Forces have sent a reconnaissance team to western Manitoba to assess conditions and best determine what kind of assistance the military can provide in this situation.
-- Approximately 300 Canadian Armed Forces personnel have deployed from Canadian Forces Base Shilo. A number of Royal Canadian Air Force assets are on a heightened state of readiness, including a CP 140 Aurora, two CH 147 Chinook and four CH146 Griffons. -- Other federal department and agencies are working with their stakeholders and counterparts in the Province to respond to the impacts of flooding. -- Through the Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements (DFAA), the Government of Canada is prepared to provide assistance to Manitoba by cost sharing their eligible flood response and recovery expenses which exceed what it might reasonably be expected to bear on their own.
"We are pleased with the close cooperation between the federal and provincial governments and want to commend all those people who working on the response to this flood including the countless volunteers who are helping family, friends and neighbours in their time of need. Our government will continue to help Manitobans any way we can during this flood."
- The Hon. Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness
"As always, our men and women in uniform stand shoulder to shoulder with communities during times of need. Our troops are providing critical support to Manitobans affected by the flooding in order to ensure their safety and protect their homes and businesses."
-The Honourable Rob Nicholson, P.C., Q.C., M.P. for Niagara Falls and Minister of National Defence
