Crisis is not unfamiliar to our communities. We’ve seen floods, ice storms – even tornadoes. But when we join together, we show our resilience.
When we stand up for one another, we can make a difference.
When the media reported imminent flooding, communities from Prescott-Russell, Ottawa, Lanark and Renfrew counties and more rallied. Everyone from frontline and emergency service workers, to residents, volunteers, city officials, non-profit groups, and members of our Canadian Armed Forces worked together.
Now, leading organizations are forming vital working groups that will work together to plan for recovery. Their mission is to share data and expertise, identify greatest needs, and collaborate to invest and deploy resources where they are needed most and will have the greatest impact.
Together, we are working with front-line agencies, local municipalities and partners to help those most in need, such as vulnerable seniors, those without insurance, and those living in low-income situations.
