Report and findings of the BC Flood and Wildfire Review: an independent review examining the 2017 flood and wildfire seasons

This strategic Review examines and assesses government response to flood and wildfire events of the 2017 season. In considering all aspects of the Province’s response to the floods and wildfires of 2017, the Review team engaged British Columbians directly in the process. This included consulting with individuals, Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, organizations and other stakeholders to gain the widest possible cross-section of perspectives through sessions undertaken in or near affected communities. 

As mandated by the Province in our terms of reference, this Review includes 108 recommendations to assist the Province in improving its systems, processes and procedures in the future. More specifically, this Review has focused on governance aspects of the system, including statutes, regulations, policy and leadership practices that define the context within which the emergency management system operates. 

This Review and its recommendations are intended to provide guidance to the Province in four areas:

  • Planning and preparedness
  • Prevention and mitigation
  • Response
  • Recovery
