Our history

The Manitoba government is making the Lake St. Martin emergency channel a permanent piece of flood-fighting infrastructure, while at the same time increasing the capacity of Lake Manitoba.

Part of the project is coming after the province received recommendations from the Lake Manitoba Lake St. Martin Regulation Review Committee that an additional outlet be constructed on Lake Manitoba to deal with inflows from the Portage Diversion.

“During the largest flood in Manitoba history, the emergency channel brought Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin back to regulatory levels within a matter of months,” Premier Greg Selinger said.

The province has notified the federal government of their plans, but no funding from Ottawa has yet been committed.

Chief, Adrian Sinclair said the evacuees are looking forward to going home

"It's gonna be a good reserve and our people are happy and they are just eager to move back to the roots they are most familiar with," he said.

Our vision

Two years after a devastating flood hit their community, one Manitoba First Nation has finally secured land to start over and rebuild.

Lake St. Martin First Nation reached an agreement with the provincial and federal government on Thursday to secure a piece of land adjacent to their existing community.
