The British Columbia Economic Development Association (BCEDA) was engaged by Community Futures Boundary (CF), with funding provided by the Province of BC’s Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development to provide assistance after the May 2018 flooding in Grand Forks through its Economic Disaster Recovery Program (EDRP).

The goal of the EDRP is to provide the community of Grand Forks and the surrounding area with relevant information and resources to help restore the economy in the short and longer-term. The EDRP is a volunteer member team with unbiased expertise in disaster recovery and economic development. They are deployed into the community to gather information and identify potential opportunities for actions to assist the community with its immediate, short, medium and long-term economic recovery efforts.
