How to qualify for the Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy

Once you install our patented sump pump solutions, you can qualify for up to $3,400 per property with Toronto's Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program. Here are the subsidy conditions:

  • You must be the registered owner of a single-family residential, duplex, triplex, or fourplex property within the City of Toronto.
  • The property must not exceed the lifetime maximum subsidy amount for each eligible installation.
  • The subsidy is available only to existing homes, not homes in the planning stages or under construction.
  • The downspouts from the property's eavestrough must be disconnected from the City's sewer system or you must have applied to the City for an exemption.
  • All front yard paved areas of the property, including parking pads, must comply with the City's Zoning By-law requirements.
  • You must submit your application within one year of completion of the installation of the flood protection device.
  • Your contractor(s) and any sub-contractor(s) who installed flood prevention device(s) must possess a valid license from the City of Toronto for the installation work, at the time of installation.
  • Original invoices from the licensed contractor(s) and any sub-contractor(s) who installed the flood prevention device(s) must be provided with your application.
  • When your application is processed, you must not have any outstanding taxes or debts owed to the City of Toronto.
  • Applying does not guarantee a subsidy. Subsidies are issued on a "first-come, first-serve" basis, and are subject to annual funding approved by City Council.
