About 22,000 people, half the population in Canada's Northwest Territories are now displaced in the country's worst fire season on record. The blaze outside Yellowknife has been advancing since it breached a firebreak over the weekend and was burning 17 kilometres outside the city.
British Columbia is officially in a provincial state of emergency and British Columbians have been asked to remain vigilant, listen to local officials and follow evacuation orders. Of the 380 active fires in the province, 160 of them are deemed out of control and more than a dozen of those are considered a threat to a local community.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and are working with our partners to assist with capacity issues for this unprecedented event.
