Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government to Assist with Flood Restoration
The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government would like to notify community members that the flooding risk is lowered and the LMG will be taking the necessary steps to ensure that all the community members’ homes that flooded on April 27, 2018 through May 4, 2018 will be restored to their pre-flood conditions. If you have flooded during this time and have not notified the LMG, we encourage you do to so as soon as you can so that you can be assisted accordingly.
This means the LMG will be visiting the homes, assessing the damage and choosing the best course of action to ensure that all community members impacted by the recent flooding will have their homes returned to the state that they were prior to any water damage.
The homes that are known to flood more often than this specific incident will be dealt with in a case by case basis to help prevent any future damage to the home.
In the meantime, the LMG is working on a project with Indian Services Canada (ISC), Ministère des Transports Québec (MTQ) and Pointe-à-la-Croix to come to a solution for Caplin Road and other flood-prone areas.
There will be a designated individual who will be going house to house to help assess the home and assist in filling out any paperwork. This type of paperwork may be personal insurance, insurance through the LMG or the claim form with ISC.
The LMG, Chief and Council and Emergency Preparedness Team will be meeting directly with ISC officials to work out the details on how to best support our community members affected by this unique situation.
There will be companies dispatched to visit the homes as soon as possible to help with the remediation for mold and other harmful outcomes of the recent flood.
Updates will be provided regularly and for more information, please contact:
