Disaster Recovery Assistance for Ontarions Program (DRAO) Information - Program Activated by the Province for Laurentian Valley

The Disaster Recovery Assistance Program for Ontarians (DRAO) has been activated for the Township of Laurentian Valley by the Minister of Municipal Affairs.  The program is administered directly by the Province and not the Township.  For further information on the program and what is eligible visit the Ministry website at the following link:  or contact 1-844-780-8925 or

As the program has been activated for all of Laurentian Valley, if you have been impacted by flooding from the Ottawa River or other rivers/water bodies in Laurentian Valley or have experienced basement flooding as a result of the higher than normal water table, you may be eligible for some funding through DRAO subject to meeting eligibility requirements.

Please note:

  • Secondary residences and cottages are not eligible for assistance.
  • Flooding related to sewer backup is not eligible for assistance, except for applications that meet the criteria for special provisions for low-income households.

Applicants are required to provide information demonstrating that damage was related to the natural disaster for which the program was activated. Some examples of documentation are:

  • receipts for items purchased to replace damaged property
  • receipts and/or invoices for disaster-related costs
  • photographs of damaged property
  • written logs of time spent on cleanup

Claims adjustors may request to visit an applicant’s property for the purpose of assessing an application.

Please note that failure to produce adequate supporting documentation may result in delayed payment or an unsuccessful application.

As a reminder, it is important to keep as much information, photos, receipts and documentation as possible, even if you are not sure of what is eligible.  Take pictures of damaged items before you dispose of them. Once the disaster has passed you can then take the time to sort out what is eligible or not.
