Dec. 14 flood relief deadline approaching


If you need financial assistance to recover from the Aug. flood, the deadline is Dec. 14.

So far, the Burlington Community Foundation Flood Disaster Relief Committee has raised $780,000 in cash and the Claims Committee is focusing on assisting those who qualify for financial assistance to prepare their claims.

“We know there are hundreds of Burlington families who qualify for financial assistance and are concentrating our efforts to communicate with those folks and help them through the process,” said Colleen Mulholland, President and CEO of the Burlington Community Foundation.

“We are also communicating with the provincial government to understand its position on providing financial assistance so we can be crystal clear on how much funding we have to disperse. Our Committee is committed to assisting everyone who needs help in submitting their claim forms.”

Since the Application for Losses and Damages became available on September 30th approximately 40 claims have been filed.
