Alberta Disaster Assistance Guidelines
In the event of a disaster, the Government of Alberta (GoA) can provide financial assistance to individuals, small businesses (including farming operations), not-for-profit organizations (including not- for-profit cooperatives), municipalities and government departments through a Disaster Recovery Program (DRP) administered by the Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA).
Note: You are expected to purchase/own INSURANCE; disaster relief is not designed to replace available insurance options.
The Alberta Disaster Assistance Guidelines have been developed by the AEMA in collaboration with provincial departments and agencies, as well as federal and non-government partners. The Guidelines support the administration of the province’s DRP, which is designed, developed and delivered to provide financial assistance for uninsurable loss and damage caused by disasters and emergencies. These guidelines are intended to assist and guide the AEMA in the development, delivery and administration of DRPs. The Emergency Management Act and the Government Emergency Management Regulation confirm the AEMA as the coordinating agency for all DRPs.
Note: DRP Funding ONLY covers your primary residence.
These Alberta Disaster Assistance Guidelines come into effect upon the signing of Ministerial Order No. A:002/12.
