The Canadian Forces will maintain soldiers in Quebec to remove sandbags and restore critical infrastructure in communities hit by flooding, Brig.-Gen. Jennie Carignan said Monday.

And while flooding has largely stabilized or begun to subside, high water levels continue to threaten some communities in Quebec and neighbouring Ontario.

The Forces have agreed to Quebec's request to deploy soldiers for a second mandate, this time helping with cleanup operations, Carignan told reporters alongside provincial Public Security Minister Genevieve Guilbault.

Carignan said the army has teams across the province trying to determine what needs to be done, how many soldiers are required and for how long.
