Information for residents affected by the October 31 storm

On November 4, Haldimand County Council passed a resolution requesting that the Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing activate the Disaster Recovery Assistance Program (DRAO) to assist permanent homeowners with the costs of cleaning, repairing and replacing essential property.

On Thursday, November 7, the Provincial Disaster Assessment Team visited Haldimand County to tour affected areas and collect information related to property damage caused by the October 31 storm. This information has been submitted to the Province for consideration. Ultimately, the decision to activate the DRAO program rests with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing.

Homeowners whose primary residence was affected by the storm are encouraged to read the DRAO funding guidelines/eligibility criteria to see if they qualify, however, applications CANNOT be submitted until the program is activated.

Information and updates about the DRAO will be posted here as they become available.
