The Canadian Red Cross has opened the 2023 Alberta Fires Appeal to help provide assistance to people across the province who have been impacted by wildfires.

With dry, windy conditions in Alberta, the province is already experiencing an active wildfire season with thousands of people being evacuated from their homes.

Donations to the Canadian Red Cross will be used for immediate and ongoing relief, recovery and resilience efforts in response to fires, and community preparedness and risk reduction for future all-hazard disaster events within Alberta.

Those wishing to make a financial donation to the 2023 Alberta Fires Appeal can do so online at, by calling 1-800-418-1111, or by texting ABFires to 45678.
