Victims of flooding may be eligible for financial support under British Columbia's Disaster Assistance Program.

When the provincial government has declared an event eligible for Disaster Financial Assistance (DFA), the DFA program can help individuals and small business owners replace or restore property damaged in the disaster.

DFA is administered through the Provincial Emergency Program of the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. Visit the Provincial Emergency Program (Website. New window.) for further information and to locate claim forms if you're seeking support.
