Shellmouth Dam Compensation Program – Spring 2022 Engagement Session

On April 26, 2022, Manitoba Emergency Measures Organization (EMO) held an engagement session on the Shellmouth Dam Compensation Program at the Miniota Community Hall. Manitoba EMO invited past compensation claimants, the Shellmouth Reservoir Regulation Liaison Committee, local municipalities, producer groups, and Indigenous communities in the area.

The session provided an update on the changes that Manitoba EMO is working on to improve the program for compensation. In August 2021, the department received five recommendations from the Office of the Auditor General (OAG) Report following their review of the 2011, 2012, and 2014 Shellmouth Dam Compensation Programs. The department has been working on, and has made progress on all five recommendations contained in this report and is looking for feedback on the proposed changes.

The session provided the opportunity for stakeholders to give their feedback on program administration, the inspection process, and communication. Responses to the questionnaire shared during the engagement session will be accepted until May 9, 2022.

Manitoba EMO continues to accept feedback on the proposed program changes at emo@gov.mb.ca.

A summary of feedback received during the engagement session is currently in development and will be shared in the coming weeks.
