Financial assitance to disaster victims

To obtain financial assistance

Citizens, businesses and communities could be eligible for financial assistance in the event of an actual or imminent disaster which may put people in danger or cause damage to property. 

With respect to financial assistance for damage to property, only belongings deemed to be essential are eligible. You are, however, responsible for insuring your belongings when it is possible to do so. In other words, government programs do not replace coverage provided by insurers.

Financial assistance is also provided for other purposes. For example, a claim may be made for temporary shelter and the deployment of emergency response measures.
