The federal government is giving $32 million towards helping protect Windsor residents from flooding.

Marco Mendicino, parliamentary secretary to Minister of Infrastructure and Communities François-Philippe Champagne, made the announcement in Windsor on Friday.

“Taking concrete steps to adapt to the impacts of climate change is more and more essential to ensuring a safe prosperous future for our kids and grandkids,” says Mendicino. “By investing in this important flood protection project, we are helping the community of Windsor build capacity for handling significant rainfalls.”

Mendicino says this important work will equip the community with the infrastructure it needs to better protect residents, become more resilient to future flooding events and greatly reduce the costs of recovery following extreme weather incidents.
