Government Announces Provincial Matching Donation

Posted by Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo on Wednesday, August 3, 2016

The Government of Alberta is contributing $30.3 million to match money donated by Albertans to the Canadian Red Cross relief campaign for residents of Fort McMurray.

The Government of Alberta’s matching contribution will be directed to three areas:

  • Community partnership grants to local charitable, non-governmental and Indigenous organizations to support the recovery of residents and the community;
  • Relief for small business owners who need assistance recovering financially; and
  • Post-disaster supports, including funding for specific health initiatives and research activities to promote the long-term emotional and social well-being of residents affected by the wildfire.
