Disaster Financial Assistance Authorized for October 2017 Flooding in CCRD

Message from Emergency Management BC

The following message is from Emergency Management BC:

Major flooding in several areas of the province from October 23-27, 2017 has caused property and content damages. As a result of the damages sustained from this event, provincial Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA) has been authorized for qualifying claimants, such as home owners, residential tenants, small business owners, farmers, charitable organizations and local government bodies, who were unable to obtain insurance to cover these disaster-related losses.

Disaster Financial Assistance has been authorized for the following areas:

Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine (electoral areas C and E)
Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako (electoral area A)
Central Coast Regional District
Village of Queen Charlotte
City of Terrace
Village of Telkwa

All applicants should first check with their insurance agent to determine if their current insurance policy provides coverage for the resulting damage. As part of the DFA qualification process, the applicant´s insurer will be asked to provide a letter indicating that the applicant could not have purchased insurance to cover these disaster-related losses.

Information about Disaster Financial Assistance is available on the DFA web site at http://www.gov.bc.ca/disasterfinancialassistance.  
The website contains the DFA Application Form, ´Disaster Financial Assistance Guidelines for Private Sector´, information bulletins about DFA and insurance and ´One Step at a time - A Guide to Disaster Recovery´.
