Evacuee Registration Assistance

The Province is now offering direct payment through Interac® e-Transfers so that evacuees receiving Emergency Support Services can get cash directly into their bank accounts and quickly access the supports they need such as food and clothing.

Registration through the BC Services Card App is required to receive Interac e-Transfers.

Follow these steps:

  1. Download the BC Services Card app from the Apple or Google app stores.
  2. Open the BC Services Card app and follow the instructions.
  3. Under “Services” locate “Evacuee Registration Assistance” and follow the login and registration instructions.

Preparing for Wildfires

Wildfires move fast, so develop a household plan, put together your grab-and-go bag and connect with your neighbours. Learn about the emergency response plan for your area by contacting your Local Authority or First Nation.
