“British Columbians have faced each new challenge over the last few years with compassion and generosity, whether it’s the flooding we’re facing now, to COVID-19 and wildfires,” said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. “The Canadian Red Cross is a trusted partner and together we will be able to get supports out to affected people and communities as quickly as possible.”

To access these supports, evacuated British Columbians need to register with the Red Cross by calling 1 800 863-6582, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (Pacific time).

The Canadian Red Cross works with the Province, local authorities and Indigenous leadership to help all people and communities affected by extreme weather and flooding in British Columbia.

Financial assistance provided through the Red Cross will not affect eligibility for supports through the provincial Emergency Support Services (ESS) program.
