Better support for people during evacuations

To better support people who cannot meet their own needs during evacuations from wildfires and other emergencies, the Province has introduced improved measures to Emergency Support Services (ESS).

An accommodation allowance of $200 per night has been introduced and is now available to evacuees through Interac e-Transfer. People who are evacuated can still receive a direct referral to a hotel or other accommodation from their local government or First Nation.

During large-scale evacuations, people who are evacuated will have the option of receiving an Interac e-Transfer for supports through, without ever needing to go to an in-person reception centre.

People who may need support during an evacuation are encouraged to create a profile on Creating a profile beforehand will save time and stress if there is an emergency. During an evacuation, people who have created a profile can log into the online self-service registration tool to receive instructions on the types of support available and how they can be accessed.
