Grand Forks, British Columbia, Canada


Since May 9, 2018, our city and region has been facing an extreme crisis with the overland flooding of two different rivers.


Thousands of people were evacuated, leaving their entire lives behind - and weeks later, hundreds still remain homeless.

In Grand Forks, the downtown core was almost completely under water - and many of the small businesses that keep our town running may be closed for weeks or months to come.

Our communities have shown tremendous strength and perseverance, and while we are uncertain of when we will be able to accurately assess the damage, we know that people will pull together to restore and rebuild.

This campaign has been organized locally by gfcu - Grand Forks Credit Union. Currently just over $51,000 is being distributed to local homeowners and renters who have been directly affected by flooding and evacuations.

Moving forward, we are looking for ways that these funds can support small business owners in reopening their doors , and to also try and find a way to support those who have been unable to work because of the flood. Applications for this can be found here.

Thank you in advance.

Donations can also be made in person at our branch in Grand Forks, BC | 447 Market Ave.

We will be working to release the funds as quickly as possible, as they are meant for immediate and short-term relief. Successful applicants will be contacted by the phone number and email address provided on the form.

The funds from this campaign will be withdrawn to an operating account at Grand Forks Credit Union via Jeff Fero - from which all cheques to recipients will be directly issued. A deliberation of applicants will be done by gfcu and Community Futures to ensure accurate and timely distribution occurs.
