Massive wildfires have triggered a province-wide state of emergency in British Columbia. Lightning, dry weather and wind throughout the region have caused fires to spread quickly, forcing thousands of people from their homes. At least 138 wildfires were sparked in a single day on July 7. Urgent support is needed for individuals and families evacuated from their communities.

The Canadian Red Cross is supporting the B.C. government in providing relief for those affected and a British Columbia Fires Appeal has been opened for Canadians who wish to help those in need.


During a major disaster such as this, our response needs to be swift to ensure help reaches those who need it most.


Your generous donation to the B.C. Fires Appeal will help provide immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification as well as financial assistance so individuals and families can get the food, clothing, shelter, and anything else that can help them recover from this tragedy.
