The following message was received from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH):
The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is undertaking a review of the Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program (ODRAP) to ensure the program design and criteria reflect current needs in addressing extreme weather events. As part of the review, the ministry is inviting public input. A consultation on the program is now open on the MMAH website until March 4, at www.mah.gov.on.ca/Page10831.aspx.
The consultation is open to all who wish to share their comments or experience with ODRAP. Hearing from both municipalities and members of the public is critical to ensuring that disaster assistance meets the needs of Ontarians. In addition to submitting comments from your municipality, please consider sharing this opportunity for feedback with residents in your municipality who may have experience with ODRAP, by posting a link on your website. Comments can be submitted through the ministry website or to ODRAPConsultation@ontario.ca.
