The amount represents a 48% increase in the government’s compensation program in the event of natural disasters, in order to reach the median value of properties in Quebec.

“We have increased the amounts of the financial assistance program so that they better reflect the reality of the real estate market. We will do whatever it takes to help the people of the region, ”assured Prime Minister François Legault, who went to Saguenay to meet disaster victims on Wednesday.

In addition, the amount allocated to disaster victims to enable them to cover the cost of their evacuation was doubled, from $20 to $40 per day. “This 100% bonus represents, for example, a monthly allowance of $4,800 instead of $2,400 for a family of four,” the government pointed out.

“The government’s support thus comes on top of everything that the Municipality is putting in place to support and accompany the people affected by these unfortunate events as best as possible,” said the Deputy Premier and Minister of Public Security, Genevieve Guilbault.
