2017 Canada – British Columbia Wildfire Recovery Initiative
The 2017 Canada-British Columbia Wildfires Recovery Initiative will provide up to $20 million to assist agricultural producers with the extraordinary costs incurred to recover from the adverse effects of this year’s wildfires.
Please find below the Application Forms for the 2017 Canada B.C. Wildfire Recovery Initiative for Livestock. The wildfires have caused a wide array of damage and as a result the application process is quite comprehensive. Please do not hesitate to call the contacts, listed below, if you have any questions. Business Risk Management Branch staff will do their best to help you.
The Wildfire Recovery Initiative is cost-shared between the federal and provincial governments on a 60 – 40 percent ratio. It is intended to help agricultural producers with the extraordinary expenses necessary for recovery and to return to production as soon as possible. It is designed to provide funding up front and allow for updates as further loss information becomes available. This is particularly true for livestock producers who require some flexibility in managing the difficult conditions they are currently facing.
The Wildfire Recovery Initiative provides some assistance to help offset the extraordinary costs required to return to agricultural production. It is not intended to compensate for farm income losses and does not diminish the need to purchase commercial insurance for farm assets and infrastructure.
