The Disaster Recovery Program | Alberta.ca (DRP) provides financial assistance to help restore uninsurable property that is lost or damaged by a disaster to its basic, pre-disaster functional condition.
The DRP provides financial assistance as a last resort to assist those affected by a disaster. YOU MUST ACCESS YOUR OWN INSURANCE OPTIONS AND ANY OTHER AVAILABLE SOURCES OF ASSISTANCE FIRST.
When insurance is readily and reasonably available at the time of a disaster event, costs associated with insurable loss and damage are not eligible for DRP assistance. When someone has chosen to not insure their property adequately, they will not be eligible to receive DRP assistance.
For information on what disasters and perils are considered covered by insurance, visit Insurable Disasters at https://www.alberta.ca/insurable-disasters.aspx.
