B.C. construction industry rallies for fire relief

August 17, 2017

Support for the Here4BC campaign, launched on July 18 by the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA), has gained huge momentum across the Canadian construction industry, with 56 companies and associations, including the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) and the Urban Development Institute, Pacific Region, committing to raise $1 million dollars to assist British Columbians who have been displaced, lost homes and businesses, and much more as a result of the wildfires.
The Here4BC program www.Here4BC.caencourages the industry to contribute to the Red Cross British Columbia Fire Appeal through financial donations and/or by contributing to the online registry of supplies, services, and equipment that can be loaned or donated to relief efforts.
“We’re incredibly proud to see the industry joining resources to help British Columbians in need,” said VRCA President, Fiona Famulak. “The key to this campaign’s success is having associations in the Canadian construction industry mobilize their members. So far, more than $124,000 has been raised—and is increasing by the hour.”
 Bob de Wit, GVHBA CEO, said the wildfire devastation really hits home for members. “We’re proud to be part of this important initiative.”
The Here4BC fundraising campaign will run until August 31.
