Financial assistance according to your needs, to help you on your way to a normal life.

      • $3,200 for resident homeowners
      • $1,000 for resident tenants

Who ?

You are eligible for financial assistance if:

        * Resident homeowners with a property value of $500 000 or more are not eligible.

Additional financial assistance may be offered to you if :

      • In addition to being a resident homeowner* or tenant, your financial situation is precarious;
      • You are self-employed and your place of work is at home, and your home has been lost to the floods or has suffered major damage
      • You are a resident homeowner* and your septic tank or artesian well is no longer functional;
      • You are a resident homeowner* or tenant with three or more dependents.
