Fisher River Cree Nation Chief & Council issued a state of emergency on April 29, 2022 in regards to high risk of flooding of the Fisher River due to the weather.

Currently, the Personal Care Home, Jordan’s Principle, In-home Community Care and Pre-Natal Clients are all mobilized as of last night and are ready to be evacuated, if need be, with accommodations already coordinated. Bay River Inn & Suites has also been identified as evacuee accommodations.

Today, approximately 100 tiger dams were delivered with 8 homes already protected. Emergency Crews are in hourly contact with officials from Peguis First Nation and Manitoba Highways; as highway conditions will factor if an evacuation is be called.

Indigenous Services Canada pledged their support to the community in our efforts and the Provincial Water Management continue to monitor the Fisher River.

We will continue to update the community as needed.
