Spring Brings Floods to Quebec

The spring flooding is at its peak and although most water levels are down, some areas of the province are still considered to be major flood zones. Some flooded residents are facing an incident that is not their first and in the face of repetitive flooding, it is essential to rethink urban planning in high-risk areas.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault says his government is implementing new programs that will take into account repetitive incidents encouraging people to relocate out of flood zone areas. A new version of the compensation program came into effect April 15th, simplifying the process of receiving financial assistance for citizens dealing with the consequences of disaster.

Insurers are less likely to insure homes that have previously suffered water damage. For more information, contact your broker or company agent.
