BC Flooding Financial Support & Resources

Bringing together the power of many to help those affected by BC Flooding.

A variety of programs and essential supports will be critical as BC residents respond and recover physically and emotionally from the devastation of floods throughout our province. The United for BC Flood Response Fund will play an important role in helping affected communities in the aftermath of these floods. Funds go towards addressing important needs like housing, food assistance, trauma and mental health support. 

The Province is teaming up with the Canadian Red Cross to provide additional financial assistance to help people meet the immediate needs associated with being evacuated due to flooding. Financial assistance will be provided by the Red Cross to people whose primary residences have been placed on evacuation orders due to the flooding and extreme weather event that occurred Nov. 14-16, 2021. Eligible households will receive $2,000.
