“Recovering and rebuilding can be the hardest part of any emergency,” said Minister Doug Griffiths, Municipal Affairs. “When disasters happen, our government’s first priority is getting help to residents. This funding will go a long way to helping Calgarians and the City of Calgary itself repair and rebuild their homes and communities.”

The registration centre is being coordinated and facilitated by the Calgary Emergency Management Agency.
Assistance may be available to homeowners (principal residence only – at the time of the event), tenants small business (includes landlords) Institutions / not-for-profit, and condominium associations within the City of Calgary. Assistance may be provided only for situations where insurance is not readily and reasonably available.
The registration centre will be held at the City of Calgary Water Centre (625 – 25 Avenue SE; Spiller Road and 25th Avenue SE) on:
