(Albert, Gloucester, Kent, Kings, Northumberland, Queens, Westmorland and York counties.)

Starting on December 9, 2014, a significant weather system (nor’easter) approached the province bringing a mix of snow, rain, and ice. The warm temperatures, frozen ground and a total of 200 mm of rain caused flooding in Northeastern and Southeastern parts of the province (affecting 8 counties). Flooding caused a number of issues including damages to private sector homes and businesses but also to the public sector infrastructure. Impacts from flooding were experienced in Albert, Gloucester, Kent, Kings, Northumberland, Queens, Westmorland and York counties.


The application deadline for residential, small business and not-for-profit organizations is 90 days from the date the DFA Program was authorized. The December 2014 Heavy Rainfall DFA program is now closed.
