Ontario is providing financial support through the Municipal Disaster Recovery Assistance program to help the Township of Frontenac Islands with flood recovery efforts.
Heavy rainfall combined with spring runoff and high water levels on Lake Ontario led to significant flooding in Frontenac Islands starting on May 5, 2017. The funds will help restore damaged ferry docks and numerous roads in the township. The township may be eligible for as much as $560,593 in provincial funding under the program.
The Municipal Disaster Recovery Assistance program helps municipalities address extraordinary emergency response costs and damage to essential property or infrastructure like bridges, roads and public buildings, as a result of a natural disaster.
