DISASTER ASSISTANCE FOR ONTARIANS (DRAO) is here to help you recover from the flooding.

Tenants and homeowners can apply to have 90% of their eligible costs covered up to $250,000. 

 

Coverage Eligible costs include emergency expenses, cleanup expenses and costs to repair or replace essential property (e.g., furnaces and hot water heaters). The program does not cover costs such as refinishing basement recreation rooms or restoring landscaping, fencing, retaining walls, docks or boathouses. Insurance payments will be deducted from your eligible costs. Damage caused by overland flooding, infiltration flooding and sump pump failure is eligible for assistance under the program. Flooding related to sewer backup is not eligible for assistance, except under special provisions for lowincome households. Secondary residences and cottages are also not eligible for assistance. Visit https://www.ontario.ca/page/apply-disaster-recovery-assistance for more information and contact us for assistance with your applications.
