News - Full Story The Government of Canada is Committed to Supporting Canadians Through the 2022 Wildfire Season

VANCOUVER, BC, May 13, 2022 /CNW/ - As wildfires become more common and more extreme, the Government of Canada is focused on keeping people safe while strengthening Canada's long-term response.

Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources; the Honourable Bill Blair, President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada and Minister of Emergency Preparedness; and the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Indigenous Services and Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Northern Ontario, spoke about steps taken so far to support communities hit by wildfires and new measures for this year's fire season and for seasons to come. 

The ministers were joined by the Honourable Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General; the First Nations Emergency Services Society; the First Nations Health Council; the First Nations Leadership Council; and Bryan May, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Defence, as well as representatives from Squamish Nation and Tsleil-Waututh Nation.

Support for communities affected by last season's wildfires, including:

  • Approximately $416 million in federal funding through the Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements (DFAA) program for response and rebuild costs associated with the 2021 wildfires in British Columbia, including Lytton.
  • $24 million in recovery funding for Lytton First Nation, including for 39 interim housing units.
  • In addition, Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) provides funding to support First Nations across the country to prepare for, prevent and mitigate emergency events, including wildfire. In 2021–22, ISC provided $17.5 million to support this work.
  • Response in 2021 to 14 requests from British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario for emergency support on wildfires, including the deployment of Canadian Armed Forces personnel and resources for evacuations and firefighting.

Next steps for the 2022 season on beyond, including:

  • $516 million through Budget 2022 for communities across the country to:
    • train 1,000 additional firefighters and incorporate Indigenous traditional knowledge in fire management
    • help provinces, territories and First Nations communities buy firefighting equipment
    • develop a new wildfire monitoring satellite system
  • Over $8.4 million in 2022 through the First Nations Emergency Services Society to support emergency planning, preparedness and response in First Nations communities in British Columbia
  • A commitment to a June 10 meeting of the Joint Committee to Address Extreme Weather and Climate Resilience

The Ministers were joined by officials from NRCan, as well as members of the First Nations Emergency Services Society. Current projections indicate that this could be a challenging summer for wildfires in parts of the country. Forecasts for warm, dry weather indicate the potential for increased fire activity across much of Canada. NRCan publicly shares forecasting for the fire season with full transparency regarding the uncertainty inherent in these projections.

Since 2019, we have made significant investments into the mitigation and prevention of wildfire events and the recovery from them. These include $61 million through the Emergency Management Assistance Program, which goes directly to communities in British Columbia, and $7 million in specific FireSmart Funding to support wildfire risk reduction.

Canada is currently developing its first National Adaptation Strategy, working with provincial, territorial and municipal governments, Indigenous peoples and other key partners, to make communities safer and more resilient. Public consultation on the National Adaptation Strategy will launch soon, with a targeted release of the strategy by fall 2022.

The Government of Canada is committed to keeping all Canadians safe as all orders of government work together to prepare for the 2022 wildfire season.


"We have seen the devastating effects wildfires and natural disasters can have on Canadians and their communities, and the Government of Canada is here to support those Canadians and those communities. We recognize the importance of protecting our communities in the face of ever-changing threats, many of them increased by climate change. Preventive measures will help increase our resilience."

The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson
Minister of Natural Resources

"Last year, extreme weather devastated British Columbia, taking lives, destroying communities and the livelihoods of so many. With the changing climate, all orders of government and emergency management partners need to take strong action to prepare for future emergencies, including wildfires. We must adapt to this changing reality and build up our collective preparedness and response capacity. The Government of Canada is unwavering in our commitment to support Canadians as we build resiliency to the threats that exist right across the country."

The Honourable Bill Blair
President of the Queen's Privy Council and Minister of Emergency Preparedness

"Climate change is here, it's real, and we need to push together more than ever to protect our communities, our forests and wildlife and our food supply from longer and hotter summer months. We must recognize First Nation leaders and organizations for the care and dedication focused on their communities as we continue to advance emergency response measures in the short term and the long term. Investments from Budget 2022 are an important step to placing Indigenous knowledge at the forefront of emergency management while we continue to our work on the path to reconciliation."

The Honourable Patty Hajdu
Minister of Indigenous Services and Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Northern Ontario

"In the face of climate disasters, no community can be left behind. While we work to reduce pollution and slow down the rate of climate change, we must adapt and prepare for its impacts. This is why our government is developing the first ever National Adaptation Strategy — to make sure we have the tools needed to build a more climate-ready Canada."

The Honourable Steven Guilbeault
Minister of Environment and Climate Change Canada

"In many ways, British Columbia is on the front lines of climate change in Canada. It's clear that we all need to do more to keep our communities safe and prepared for future wildfire seasons. We have made significant new investments to better protect people and communities against future climate disasters. We're grateful for the Government of Canada's support as we continue improving our mitigative infrastructure, collective preparedness and response."

The Honourable Mike Farnworth
Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, British Columbia

"In British Columbia, wildfires are becoming more severe as a result of climate change. I had the chance to visit some of the BCWS fire camps in 2021 and saw first-hand how devastating wildfires can be for people and their communities. We are transforming the BC Wildfire Service into a proactive, year-around service, and we are working to help people on the ground better prepare for, and recover from, future wildfires. This investment by the Government of Canada will help with wildfire mitigation, response, monitoring and, most importantly, keeping people safe." 

The Honourable Katrine Conroy
Minister of Forests, British Columbia
