The 2011 flood was one of the largest and most expensive the province of Manitoba has ever seen.

Many of those impacted by the flood remain in need of assistance to this day.

This week the Liberal party released its final report on the 2011 flood.

It calls for major changes to how the province deals with the after effects of a flood.

In all, 65 recommendations were made based on consultations with impacted communities.

The recommendations include improved health care, financial disaster relief and better water management.

Critics say the time for action is now.
