B.C. has announced a huge funding package to help farmers and food producers who were affected by November’s record-breaking floods.
“This is the greatest amount of financial support of its kind in B.C.’s history,” Minister of Agriculture Lana Popham said Monday afternoon.
The package, consisting of $228 million in provincial and federal cash, will go towards needs not covered by existing programs or private insurance.
This includes returning flood-impacted land and buildings to their previous state, replacing perennial plants such as blueberries, the repair of uninsurable farm infrastructure, and care for animals.
