Supporting BC flood relief efforts

Person in a flooded area.

Our research team has assembled a list of charities addressing urgent needs in British Columbia.

The BC floods have displaced thousands of British Columbians, destroyed homes, and affected livelihoods. As rainfall continues in Western Canada, this is an ongoing situation. Many have been left stranded and are relying on support from relief organizations and the generosity of others.

Humanitarian and relief organizations are providing shelter, food, and essential goods to evacuees as well as the hard-working first responders in afflicted communities.

In response to donors’ questions about how Canadians can help, we have put together a list of charities that have made appeals for donations specific to the BC floods. You can follow the links below to learn more about these qualified donees.
