Funding for communities affected by floods
  • Government is providing the 10 B.C. communities severely affected by the November 2021 floods with $53.6 million to support recovery work and get people back into their communities.
  • In addition to supporting intermediate temporary housing for displaced residents of Princeton, the grants will enable all 10 local governments to:
    • take care of initial flood-recovery costs not covered by other assistance programs;
    • carry out initial small-scale recovery-related capital projects;
    • implement planning, feasibility studies and design work to support resilient infrastructure; and
    • restore infrastructure in a way that provides additional resilience to climate events.
  • This funding is part of more than $2.1 billion that Budget 2022 provided to help people recover from floods and wildfires, and to better protect communities against future climate disasters.
