Helping Lytton rebuild homes and businesses
On June 30, 2021, devastating wildfires tore through the Village of Lytton causing tragic loss of life and catastrophic damage to the community’s homes, businesses, and infrastructure. As Lytton rebuilds, PacifiCan, the federal regional development agency for British Columbians, will help Lytton’s residents and businesses rebuild homes and businesses.
What is available through this initiative?
Alongside initiatives of other federal departments, PacifiCan will offer two new programs to support the rebuilding of Lytton as a leading example of resilient, net-zero design:
- $6 million for the new Lytton Homeowner Resilient Rebuild program to support eligible homeowners who will rebuild to net-zero and fire-resistant standards; and
- $7.2 million to create the Lytton Business Restart program to help small- and medium-sized businesses re-establish in the community. This funding will include support for Indigenous businesses and those operated by women, youth and other underrepresented groups.
In advance of the launch of the new programs, PacifiCan is inviting discussion with homeowners, business owners, and others impacted by the Lytton Fire.
If you are thinking about what your home rebuild or business in Lytton will look like and have questions about how PacifiCan programs may be able to help, please contact PacifiCan at Lytton@pacifican.gc.ca.
