Red Cross Flood Recovery for Small Business and Not-for-Profit Organizations Program


The Canadian Red Cross is committed to supporting affected individuals and communities in the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) following 2018 spring flooding.  Experience has shown us that support for small businesses and not-for-profit organizations are essential to the recovery of people and communities affected by a disaster.

Initial Emergency Financial Assistance from the Support for Small Business program closed in October, 2018.

Additional Financial Assistance

This financial assistance is to provide support for uninsured financial losses as a result of interrupted business operations, due to the floods. The amount of financial assistance provided to eligible businesses will be based on their individual needs, which will be determined through the application process.

Application Period

Small business owners and not-for-profit organizations can apply online until March 1, 2019.
