Alberta and Canada to match Canadian Red Cross donations to support Alberta wildfire response
OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to advise that the
Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta will each match every dollar donated to the
Canadian Red Cross 2023 Alberta Fires Appeal. This means that every $1 donated will become $3
to support those affected by the wildfires.
Donated funds will be used for immediate and ongoing relief and recovery efforts in response to the
devastating wildfires. The funds will support a range of emergency services the Canadian Red Cross
may deliver to those in need. Donated funds will allow the Canadian Red Cross to support community
organizations to support impacted people and communities as they begin the long process of recovery
for increasing events. Other supports may include financial assistance for immediate unmet needs,
and other essential services not covered by federal or provincial programs.
Those wishing to make a financial donation to the 2023 Alberta Fires Appeal can do so online
at www.redcross.ca or by calling 1-800-418-1111.
The most up-to-date evacuation information is available at alberta.ca/emergency, Alberta Emergency
Alert or by downloading the Alberta Emergency Alert mobile app, which immediately pushes all
alerts out to subscribers. Albertans seeking information or supports can call 310-4455.
Anyone who has been evacuated due to wildfires is asked to register at local reception centre or
