Leamington, Essex and Kingsville Receive More Assistance For Tornado Recovery

McGuinty Government Continues To Support Local Recovery Efforts

Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Ontario is continuing to help the Municipality of Leamington, and the Towns of Essex and Kingsville recover from damages caused by tornadoes last June.

Up to an additional $1 million will be provided by the Province to help the municipalities continue their recovery efforts and replant trees on public property.

This support is in addition to the financial relief of over $900,000 that was provided shortly after the tornadoes occurred.  The immediate aid from the Province helped the municipalities cover clean up costs and repairs on municipal properties, including Seacliff Park in Leamington.   It also helped individuals and non-profit organizations impacted by the tornadoes through the Essex County Tornado Assistance Fund.
