Wildfires challenge supply chains and communities in BC

August 22, 2023

RCC staff continue to participate in supply chain roundtables and monitor the impacts of wildfires on both the supply chain and communities.  At this point, the wildfires in South Central B.C. are having the greatest impact on the supply chain.  Rail and road traffic continues to move, although there are smaller detours impacting the main truck route between the Port of Vancouver and Eastern Canada. Some communities in the Northwest Territories, as well as the Shuswap and Okanagan regions of B.C. have been significantly impacted by the fires.  RCC extends our sympathies to those Canadians who have lost homes or businesses.  For those wanting to give to the support of evacuees and recovery, the Canadian Red Cross has created a wildfire relief fund.
