Canada Post will assist the Alberta government in its efforts to provide financial relief to those evacuees who suffered financial hardship due to the evacuation of Fort McMurray.
The Fort McMurray Wildfire Relief Funding for Evacuees Outside of Alberta program was announced on May 31 by the Alberta government with evacuees able to get monies from Canada Post.
The program will run until June 15.
Eligibility requirements and how to pick up the financial relief from Canada Post or a provincial government office are detailed on the Alberta government’s website.
Eligible recipients are encouraged to contact the Alberta government if they have specific questions regarding the program.
