Ontario has notified the municipality of Minden Hills that it has activated the Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarians program.
On May 5, heavy rains caused widespread flooding in Minden Hills, potentially impacting more than 200 properties. Affected individuals, small businesses, farmers and not-for-profit organizations who have experienced property damage or loss as a result of this disaster may be eligible to receive help with expenses.
The program applies to a primary residence and its basic contents, or a main small business premise.
Officials are closely monitoring the other areas experiencing flooding across the province. The government may activate the program in other parts of the province as flood impacts continue to be assessed in the coming days and weeks.
