With the flood situation in many parts of the province beginning to stabilize, the Government of British Columbia has amended its request for federal assistance to support B.C.’s response to flooding.
To help people impacted by the recent devastating flooding, the B.C. government is encouraging British Columbians to donate to the Canadian Red Cross and will match contributions up to a total of $20 million, Premier John Horgan has announced.
Budget 2018 carves a new path to shared prosperity for everyone in the province with a made-in-B.C. child-care plan, a comprehensive housing plan and record levels of capital investment in every corner of the province, Finance Minister Carole James announced today.
Many parts of British Columbia are experiencing intense fire activity this long weekend, and based on the weather outlook, this will continue for the foreseeable future.
As flood waters recede throughout the province, and with another wildfire season on the horizon, the Province of British Columbia and the Canadian Red Cross have announced a new initiative designed to help people and families affected by disaster better transition into long-term recovery.
As the Province and local authorities move from flood response to recovery, Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, has amended his request for federal resources, and offered his gratitude to the federal government and provincial public safety partners for their help during the recent flooding:
