The Canadian government on Friday announced $ 2.5 million grant to the Canadian Red Cross to support relief and flood recovery efforts across the country.

At an event at the Canadian Red Cross headquarters in Ottawa on Friday, the government said the funds would be used to support people displaced by the floods, including temporary housing, clothing, food and other basic supplies.

The government also said that funds could also be used to support affected populations when they return to their homes or begin to recover their lives as the floods recede.

“Canadians are grateful to the Red Cross for their dedicated work in cooperation with all levels of governmental and community organizations to support recovery efforts in the face of this spring flood,” said Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.

Three Canadian counties, Ontario, New Brunswick and Quebec, suffer from floods that have displaced thousands this spring.
