Quebec aid: $200,000 to renovate flooded homes

June 02 2018

A year after the Quebec government offered financial aid to homeowners whose property was damaged in serious spring flooding, residents are rebuilding but some say they have not yet received compensation.
The financial aid offers $200,000 for residents who need to renovate their properties to ensure they are flood safe. Homeowners who want to sell their land to the municipality were to be reimbursed for up to $250,000, according to Public Security Minister Martin Coiteux.
But property owners in Rigaud, where 37 houses were demolished and many are rebuilding, and in Pierefonds, which also suffered damage, have complained about problems with getting permits and solving issues with claims. In some cases, government cheques have not yet arrived, according to Riguad mayor Hans Gruenwald.
"There's a lot of red tape with the government and it's very difficult to deal with the government and you need to be proactive," one homeowner told CTV News in Montreal.
