Many communities in BC have been affected by wildfires this year, which can lead to sudden or unexpected legal problems. We wanted to highlight Clicklaw’s common question Where can I get help with legal problems caused by wildfires in BC. This common question links out to a variety of resources that can help those dealing with the legal problems created by natural disasters such as wildfires. Check the common question if you’d like to learn more about the resources available, including support services during an emergency, financial assistance after a disaster, and legal fact sheets relating to possible disaster-related issues in many areas of law.
More resources relating to the wildfires may be created or updated over the coming months; Clicklaw’s common question will be updated as more information becomes available.
