As recovery and rebuilding efforts in flood affected areas are underway, AAMDC would like to remind members that there are a number of Disaster Recovery Programs available for homeowners, agricultural producers, small business and not-for-profit associations. 

The Government of Alberta has been supporting the rebuilding efforts of municipalities affected by the floods with disaster recovery funds.  In a previous news release, it was expressed that support has been provided to the MD of Bighorn, the RM of Wood Buffalo and the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass totaling $13.31 million.  The government has also provided support to municipalities in other forms including distributing funding for displaced residents, preparing temporary classrooms while affected schools are under repair and responding to thousands of calls to the Alberta Flood Information Line.

To better prepare for future floods, the Government of Alberta announced the Alberta Flood Mitigation Symposium that will be held in Calgary on October 4, 2013.  The half-day symposium will include discussions at local and provincial levels.  Registration is required and is available by clicking here. As space is limited, the half-day symposium will also be broadcast online.

The Government of Alberta has developed the Provincial Recovery Frameworkwhich is designed to support the four stages of recovery; response, stabilization, intermediate recovery and long-term recovery. The AAMDC has been engaging with government as a stakeholder in the recovery effort and will continue to advise members on developments as they become available.
