Lake St. Martin
Lake St. Martin First Nation
Lake St. Martin First Nation is a First Nations government and Treaty 2 signatory.
The First Nation was based primarily at Lake St. Martin about 225 kilometres (140 mi) northwest of Winnipeg until May 2011. When a massive flood hit Manitoba, the Government of Manitoba decided to divert water to Lake St. Martin in order to protect cottage, and agricultural properties on other bodies of water. As a result all the housing at Lake St. Martin First Nation was destroyed. As of 2014, the approximately 1,900 flood evacuees are still displaced.
