Canadian Red Cross Community PartnershipsThe Canadian Red Cross recognizes the importance of supporting and strengthening community organizations to provide critical services to those affected by disasters and to play an active role in the recovery and rebuilding processes in their communities.
Through Community Partnerships, the Canadian Red Cross funds a range of initiatives identified and implemented by community groups, municipalities, registered charities and other organizations, to support the relief and recovery of those affected by disasters.
The Canadian Red Cross is currently implementing Community Partnerships as part of the emergency responses below. Follow the links below for more information about each response.
British Columbia Fires 2017
The Canadian Red Cross recognizes the importance of strengthening existing support structures that were in community prior to the event and organizations providing critical services in host communities. Through Community Partnerships for the British Columbia Fires, the Red Cross is supporting the mobilization of resources to support critical emergency relief and recovery activities of partnering organizations.
Please note that we are prioritizing applications that support Emergency Relief at this time.

Through Community Partnerships in Alberta, the Red Cross is continuing to support community driven efforts that promote individual and community recovery with a focus on long term resiliency. Applications for the Program have been accepted since June 2, 2016. Since then, both the Red Cross and the United Way have received numerous applications, many of which were to support emergency needs and re-entry needs.
The call for applications is now closed. More application dates will be shared soon.

To apply for either program, first register or sign in to FluidReview. You will be asked to complete an Organization Eligibility form to establish in principle if a partnership is possible according to the program Guidelines. Once you complete this form, the system will automatically direct you to the application form for either Alberta or British Columbia Fires, based on your answers. Please ensure that you are using the appropriate application form, as the programs are separate and only applications submitted to the appropriate program can be considered.
How do I start?
If you are interested in submitting an application, please register for the site on the right-hand side of the page. Please note that all applications must be submitted via the online form.
Can more than one person in my organization register?
More than one person can register per organization, but each application must be associated with a "lead" applicant. Once registered, that "lead" applicant can provide others with access to the application through the system.
What happens once I register?
Once you register and confirm your email address, you will see a home page. Before you can access the application form, you will be required to complete an organization eligibility survey. This will determine if your organization is eligible in principle and direct you to the appropriate application form. You will also be required to answer some questions to determine if your project is eligible in principle.
If you have any other questions, or if you are unsure if your organization or proposed project are eligible, please contact us:
