Based on the unprecedented rain storm in Mississauga which resulted in a severe flooding
event on July 8, 2013, the City of Mississauga is asking the Province of Ontario to declare
areas of the city a "disaster area".
In a resolution signed today by Acting Mayor Nando Iannicca, the City is requesting disaster
relief funding from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing through the Ontario Disaster
Relief Assistance Program (ODRAP). Pending the Minister's declaration of a disaster,
Council will appoint members to a disaster relief committee to administer funding. See attached resolution.
The resolution will be ratified by City Council at a future meeting as soon as possible.
