NRCan gives $10M towards reforestation in Interior B.C.
Wildfires are becoming more severe and frequent as a result of climate change. They impact our health through air pollution while devastating the environment, including through habitat loss. The Government of Canada is committed to supporting reforestation in British Columbia and across the country. Restoring forests will help sequester carbon to fight climate change while delivering clean air, supporting biodiversity and creating sustainable jobs.
That’s why Minister of Natural Resources Jonathan Wilkinson has announced a contribution of over $10 million to Central Chilcotin Rehabilitation Ltd. through the 2 Billion Trees program, which aims to motivate and support new tree-planting projects.
