Nova Scotia Supports New Brunswick Flood Relief


Nova Scotia will provide $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to support New Brunswickers affected by the recent flooding of the St. John River.

“After record-breaking flooding this spring, many people who live along the river have lost their homes and personal belongings,” said Premier McNeil. “On behalf of all Nova Scotians, we want to support our neighbours in their time of need.”

The Canadian Red Cross has worked with civil and provincial authorities to respond to the needs of those impacted by flooding, such as registering evacuees, arranging emergency lodging and food where required and in some cases providing financial assistance.
