Cornwall city hall

CORNWALL, Ontario - It appears a collection of First Nation residents from a Northern Ontario community are staying right where they are.

City officials said an imminent arrival is unlikely any time soon.

"I have been informed by the Province of Ontario that the community of Kashechewan First Nation has terminated their emergency and there is no indication that Cornwall will have any residents visiting our community," said Bradley Nuttley, the city's emergency management and community safety co-ordinator, in a statement.

The statement was provided by Cornwall public information officer Kevin Lajoie.

Last year Nav Centre in Cornwall was home to dozens of First Nation evacuees who were forced to leave their homes because of flooding.

Often many First Nation reserves face flooding challenges at this time of year as a result of rapid snow melt and rainfall.
