Updated: Province Expands Activation Area for the Disaster Recovery Assistance Program in Ottawa

Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing

Ontario has expanded the activation area for the Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarians Program within the City of Ottawa (Dunrobin/Kinburn).

The program was activated on September 22, 2018 in areas within the City of Ottawa affected by two tornadoes. The province has identified additional properties, outside of the original activation areas, that were damaged and may be eligible under the program.  

The disaster assistance program applies to a primary residence and its basic contents, or to a small business, farm or not-for-profit organization. It provides assistance for emergency expenses and the costs to repair or replace essential property following a natural disaster that are not covered by insurance. To find out if they are in the expanded activation area and for next steps, individuals and businesses should review the updated map and program guidelines available at ontario.ca/DisasterAssistance, or call 1-844-780-8925 or email disasterassistance@ontario.ca after speaking with their private insurance provider.  

The deadline to submit claims for applicants remains the same as the initial program activation: January 21, 2019.

Event type: Tornado

Event date: September 21, 2018
