The Local State of Emergency in the City of Courtenay has been LIFTED!

According to provincial staff, this flood was a one-in-100 year event, and was the largest flow in recorded history in the Puntledge River – that’s over 51 years of recorded data.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be moving into the recovery period. We will continue to provide regular updates over the coming weeks.

On behalf of all of us at the City of Courtenay, we thank the public for your patience and support during this difficult time. We also thank all of the other agencies involved in the response effort. Meanwhile Dove Creek Road is now open.
