Basement flooding protection Subsidy program in Toronto
City of Toronto is working to make improvements to its complex system of underground pipes, sewers and catchbasins, but these improvements alone cannot completely protect a home from basement flooding.
With climate change causing severe storms to occur more frequently, homeowners must also take action to reduce their risk of basement flooding. The City offers program that can help.
Through the Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program, owners of single-family, duplex or triplex residential homes can receive a financial subsidy of up to $3200,00 per property for implementing flood protection measures such as back-water valves, sump pumps, pipe severance, capping of the home’s storm sewer connection, and more.
