Community Resiliency Investment

The Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) program was announced by the provincial government in 2018 and is intended to reduce the risk of wildfires and mitigate their impacts on BC communities.

CRI includes two streams: 

Stream 1:  FireSmart Community Funding & Supports (FCFS)
The FCFS program is administered by UBCM on behalf of the BC Ministry of Forests.

Stream 2: Crown Land Wildfire Risk Reduction (CLWRR)
The CLWRR program is administered through the Ministry of Forests in collaboration with the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS), Natural Resource Regions and Districts, BC Parks, and Mountain Resorts Branch.
