Fiona Clean Up Program

As previously announced, applications for the Residential Property Clean-Up Program closed on Friday, December 9, 2022.

The City of Charlottetown, in partnership with the Provincial Department of Fisheries and Communities, has helped administer a tree clean-up program to support residents with the impact of post-tropical storm Fiona. Specifically, the program assists residents with cleaning up damaged and fallen trees, along with removing tree debris from their private property.

If you applied before Friday, December 9, 2022:
City staff will assess the applications, conduct site visits and evaluate reported damage in order to prioritize impacted properties. Following this, City contracted crews are deployed to address and clear damaged trees from these properties.

City-contracted crews will continue clean-up efforts as long as weather permits for residents who have applied prior to December 9, 2022. Work will resume once weather permits in the spring; however, no new applications will be accepted for this program. 

What the Program Covers:

  • Fiona-related uninsurable losses and damage to residential properties. This includes trees fallen in yards, damaged trees at risk of falling, and basic debris clean up on private property in the City of Charlottetown.

What the Program Does Not Cover:

  • Fallen trees or debris on homes or vehicles. These are considered insurable losses, and homeowners or business owners are responsible for contacting their insurance company to resolve Fiona-related damage to their home or vehicle.
  • Uninsurable losses and damage to businesses and not-for-profit organizations.
  • Aesthetic work on private properties, including landscaping or pruning.

Note: As specified on the application form, if you registered for this program, you have granted permission to City staff and contractors to enter your property without advance notice.
