Mitigation helps communities reduce the risk of future natural disasters. Many areas of Manitoba are at a high risk for flooding, wildfire, drought, and storms. These risks may be made worse by climate change. Mitigation efforts can save money compared to the cost of post-disaster recovery.

Mitigation and Preparedness Program

In March 2021, the Manitoba government announced the Mitigation and Preparedness Program (MPP). Applications for the first MPP were recently approved and more than $186,700 will be provided to fund 12 municipal projects under the Mitigation and Preparedness Program (MPP) to prepare for future natural disasters across Manitoba.

Flood Insurance

Ensure your home is protected this spring! Overland flood insurance is not included in usual home insurance policies and must be purchased separately from your provider to avoid costly damages. All Manitobans are reminded to review their home insurance policies to see if they are eligible.
