With the serious wildfire situation continuing in BC, we recognize that you may have been impacted and possibly evacuated from your home.
In the event you have been impacted, the Ministry for Children and Family Development (MCFD) has put in place a phone number for the specific use of all care providers (Foster Parents working directly with MCFD and contracted agency staffed residential and satellite homes) impacted by the wildfires.
Please call 604.310.1234:
- If you are in a wildfire area and have been evacuated – provide your new location (we need to know the location of every child in care)
- If you have been or are needing to evacuate and require support to seek alternative accommodation
In addition to ensuring care providers are supported during this time, we ask that all care providers needing to update their mobile phone numbers with MCFD phone in to 604.310.1234. MCFD social workers will make certain our records are current so that contact with the care providers for children in care with MCFD can happen as needed despite care provider location.
If you have evacuated your home community and require support please contact the local MCFD office in your new area. All MCFD offices in and surrounding the wildfire affected areas are available to any care provider.
