Disaster Recovery Regulation

Under the Disaster Recovery Regulation, the Minister may authorize payments to assist individuals, small businesses, farmers, local authorities and other provincial government departments to recover from the cost of disaster operations and damage.

A local state of emergency does not have to be declared in order to receive financial assistance under a disaster recovery program. 

It is often thought that the two, state of local emergency and financial assistance, go hand-in-hand; this is not the case. The Disaster Recovery Regulation can be found at:
