City of Saint John receives federal funding for Flood Risk Mitigation Strategy

The City of Saint John is pleased to announce that Public Safety Canada has provided funding under the National Disaster Mitigation Program administered by the Province of New Brunswick, to enable the development of a flood risk mitigation strategy. The strategy will consist of the development of an action plan outlining how to best mitigate the impacts of climate change in the Lower Cove Loop area, a picturesque neighbourhood that overlooks the Bay of Fundy.

“Such a strategy is critical as we maintain a focus on smart, sustainable development, and experience growth as a community of choice for people to live,” says Brent McGovern, Commissioner Utilities, and Infrastructure for the City of Saint John.

The National Disaster Mitigation Program was established as part of the Government of Canada's commitment to build safer and more resilient communities. 

“Investments like this support the City of Saint John as a growing community of choice for people to live, work, invest and play,” adds McGovern. 

This project is valued at $90,000, with 50 per cent, or approximately $45,000, being provided by the Federal government and 50 per cent funded by the City of Saint John.
