New Program reimbursing municipalities for fire services provided on Crown Land

The Ontario government is launching a new program through the Northern Fire Protection Program to reimburse municipalities that provide protection services that don’t fall under any municipal boundaries, known as unincorporated areas.

Solicitor General Sylvia Jones says most northern municipal fire departments are made up of volunteers who step up to help in unincorporated areas.

She says the new program will make it easier for municipalities to recoup costs associated with responding to emergency calls for assistance and ensure they are not paying out of pocket for their important efforts.

Jones adds it will be administered by Ontario’s Office of the Fire Marshal.
