On Thursday 5 February 2015, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment released an online tool to support its guidance document on repairing and rebuilding houses affected by the Canterbury earthquakes.

The online tool is titled "Getting to grips with the Canterbury Residential Guidance" and you can access it here.

The online tool does not replace the guidance document but has been prepared to assist users to more easily navigate around the guidance document.  We think that the online tool will be useful to those who may be unfamiliar with the guidance document and its updates.
