Community Resiliency Investment Program
The Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) program was introduced by the provincial government in September 2018. The BC Wildfire Service works closely with Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, the forest industry, natural resource districts, BC Parks, Mountain Resorts Branch, and various other stakeholders to reduce wildfire risks and wildfire impacts in British Columbia. Communities are provided funding and support to complete FireSmart™ initiatives, including priority fuel management activities, on provincial Crown land and on private land.
There are two delivery and funding mechanisms within CRI: FireSmart Community Funding and Supports (FCFS), and Crown Land Wildfire Risk Reduction (WRR). Additional CRI resources can be found on the FireSmart BC website.
