Communities in Crisis Fund

In 2012, the BC Economic Development Association (BCEDA) developed the Economic Disaster Recovery Program (EDRP) to assist the community of Burns Lake, BC following the mill explosion. BCEDA continued to further develop the program in order to be better prepared to visit communities in times of crisis by raising funds through auctions and in other methods.

Since 2013, the BCEDA BC Economic Disaster Recovery Program has been involved in the following:

  • Burns Lake Mill Explosion
  • US Economic Disaster Framework Development
  • Southern Alberta Floods
  • BC Wildfires 2017/2018
  • US Virgin Islands
  • BC Floods 2018
  • 2020 COVID Pandemic
BCEDA will do whatever it can within the resources we have available to assist communities in distress.  We depend on the funds raised through our annual Auction at the BC Economic Summit and in generous donations. We welcome you to join our efforts.
