Community Partnerships Alberta Wildfires 2016

Through the Community Organization Partnership Program, the Canadian Red Cross is supporting community-led initiatives that contribute to the ongoing recovery of those affected by the 2016 Wildfires in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. A total of $50M has been committed to Community Partnerships in response to the 2016 Alberta Wildfires, with matching funds from the Government of Alberta.

Since June 2016 the Canadian Red Cross has partnered with a broad range of community organizations on projects that supported the emergency relief, re-entry, and early recovery needs of those affected. Read our Community Partnerships One Year Update to learn more about the community partnerships funded in the first year, or see the full list of projects funded to date.

Red Cross & United Way Community Partnerships Table

The Canadian Red Cross and the United Way of Fort McMurray have collaborated to establish the Community Partnerships Table (the “Table”). The Table will review applications that contain funding requests for $100,000 or more or have a wider impact on the community. The mandate of the Community Partnerships Table is to evaluate pre-qualified funding applications that have been submitted to the Canadian Red Cross and/or United Way of Fort McMurray and make strategic recommendations regarding those applications in a collaborative, transparent manner. For more information on the Community Partnerships Table click here.
