Report: Siksika flood evacuees still waiting for permanent housing

A Siksika councillor says the 2013 flood had a devastating impact on evacuees, the community and even those who’ve been helping to rebuild homes and neighbourhoods — but perhaps even worse is that five years later 900 people are still waiting to get permanent housing.

Many of the new homes on the reserve 100 kilometres east of Calgary are sitting empty, waiting for the finishing touches or final inspections before anyone can move in.
