DALLAS, Aug. 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Associa Cares Canada, the Canadian charitable affiliate of Associa and the community management industry’s leading nonprofit organisation, has earmarked additional funds to assist families and individuals evacuated from areas impacted by wildfires in West Kelwona and Yellowknife. This is in addition to funding earlier in the summer to assist individuals and families affected by major wildfires throughout the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.
As of Sunday, 35,000 people were under evacuation orders as hundreds of fires continue to burn across British Columbia. In addition, firefighters continue to battle 237 wildfires throughout the Northwest Territory, where a large blaze threatens Yellowknife. The fire is within 15 kilometers of the city, which has been evacuated by virtually all 20,000 residents. The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre reports that to date, over 5,700 fires have burned more than 137,000 square kilometers. There are currently more than 1,000 active fires throughout Canada.

“Canada is in the midst of an unprecedented natural disaster that continues to impact hundreds of thousands of families and individuals nationwide,” said Associa Cares Canada President Andrew Fortin. “We are closely monitoring these developments and are standing by to further assist those in need as the situation warrants.”
