Lake St. Martin finally reaches deal with Manitoba, Ottawa on devastating 2011 flood

APTN National News
People from Lake St. Martin First Nation have been displaced for more than three years since the 2011 flood in Manitoba.

Deals have come and gone between the chief and council, the Manitoba government and Ottawa to compensate and relocate the community.

Now there is some hope the latest signed offer on the table will be the final one.

Chief Adrian Sinclair has signed a memorandum of understanding with the government of Manitoba and Ottawa that would see the community received a settlement package for losing their homes.

The deal is estimated to range between $250 million to $300 million and will be split by Manitoba and Ottawa.
