From Displacement to Hope: A Guide for Displaced Indigenous Communities and Host Communities

This guide, funded by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), makes recommendations on how to better address the needs of First Nations communities who have been evacuated in order to avoid further harm to their residents. These recommendations start with the need to develop pre-event planning strategies, processes to address the evacuation process itself and initiatives and services to increase the support to evacuating communities and to improve relationships with host communities.

Manitoba Floods 2011 – First Nations Recovery Needs Assessment

In June 2013, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) asked the Canadian Red Cross (CRC) to conduct an assessment of the long-term needs of the evacuees from the 2011 Manitoba flooding. Over a period of three weeks, the assessment team worked with the communities devastated by the flooding, with AANDC, and with a number of other key stakeholders, including the Manitoba Association of Native Firefighters (MANFF). This report reflects the collective input of over 200 individuals, stakeholders and partners, many of whom were directly involved in the emergency efforts. This needs analysis will identify any gaps in the recovery process, and highlight appropriate recovery interventions.
