McGuinty Government Supports Reconstruction Efforts

Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Ontario is assisting the Municipality of The Nation with its efforts to repair damages caused by a landslide on March 27, 2010.

The municipality is eligible to receive up to $437,000 through the Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program (ODRAP) to help cover expenses related to:

  • repairs and rebuilding of Villeneuve Road
  • engineering reports required for the reinforcement of road stability.

Quick Facts

  • Sections of Villeneuve Road were destroyed by the landslide that hit the Municipality of The Nation on March 27, 2010. There were no injuries, and private property was not damaged.
  • ODRAP is intended to help municipalities, private homeowners, farmers, small businesses and non-profit organizations whose essential property has been damaged in a natural disaster.
  • Assistance under ODRAP may be granted when damages are so extensive that they exceed the financial resources of the affected individuals, the municipality and the community at large.
  • ODRAP is not intended to be an alternative or a substitute for adequate insurance coverage.
