Government asking people to register for Fiona relief
The provincial government is asking residents who have been displaced by Hurricane Fiona to register with the Canadian Red Cross if they have not already done so.
The Provincial Government, with the help of municipal governments and other community organizations, will be reaching out to residents regarding the application process and officials will be on the ground in the coming days to assist residents with completing applications.
Residents are also encouraged to fill out the Disaster Financial Assistance Agreement application and an official will be in contact to discuss the next steps.
To date, over $1.5 million has been dispersed to those who need it.
Those who need to register with the Canadian Red Cross to do so by either calling the toll-free number, 1-800-863-6582, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. or visiting in person at St. Christopher’s Hotel, 146 Caribou Rd, Channel-Port aux Basques, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday weekly.
