Drywall Support Program commences on May 1
What is the Drywall Support Program?
The Government of Canada is providing relief to Western and Northern Canadian drywall contractors and builders who faced unexpected losses due to the duties imposed on imported drywall from the United States.
The Drywall Support Program will also provide some relief to residents of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo whose homes were severely damaged or destroyed in the May 2016 wildfires and who are now facing higher rebuilding costs.
When will the program launch?
The Program will launch May 1, 2017 and end May 31, 2017.
More information about eligibility and how to apply is posted on the Western Economic Diversification Canada (WD) website.
Western Economic Diversification Canada is pleased to be administering the Drywall Support Program, in conjunction with the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor). The Program was announced by the Government of Canada on February 27, 2017.
