Deadline looming for flood disaster assistance

Residents walk through flood waters in Calgary on June 24, 2013. The Alberta government says homeowners and small businesses affected by last month's severe flooding can expect a rebuild, but they won't be entitled to hardwood floors or granite counter tops.


Time is running out for Albertans to apply for disaster assistance from the province.

Those with uninsurable damage caused by the June 2013 floods have until the end of the day on Saturday, November 30 to submit their applications.

The Southern Alberta Disaster Recovery Program was announced just days after June’s flooding; it provides financial assistance for property damage not covered by insurance.

So far, the government has received approximately 9,490 applications, and has made almost 4,000 payments totalling $25-million.
