2019 Red River Floodway Compensation Program

The Manitoba government has announced compensation for eligible applicants related to property damage or economic losses resulting from the operation of the Red River Floodway from October 9 to November 7 under Guideline 4, Emergency Operation to Reduce Sewer Backup in Winnipeg.

Under the guideline, Manitoba must provide compensation for eligible applicants related to property damage or economic losses caused by the operation of the floodway. The program compensates for artificial flooding resulting from the operation of the Red River Floodway. Artificial flooding is measured using hydrographs, inundation maps and surveys.  Impacts related to natural flooding are not eligible for compensation under this program.

The 2019 Red River Floodway Compensation Program opened December 6, 2019 and closed to applications on March 5, 2020.
