Tsunami Debris Funding Program Announced

Local governments and First Nations can now apply for funding to help with tsunami debris cleanup.

Earlier this year, the Government of Japan graciously presented a one-time grant for approximately $1 million to the Government of Canada to help clean up tsunami debris resulting from the 9.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, 2011. The Province will administer funds since the cleanup will occur on B.C.'s shoreline.

Funding will be available for the next two fiscal years to help with shoreline cleanup efforts and disposal of debris. A portion of the funding will be set aside to cover the possibility of large or potentially dangerous pieces of debris arriving on B.C.'s shores.
