Our thoughts are with you, Fort McMurray

CIPS Alberta and CIPS National extend our thoughts and prayers to the people of Fort McMurray and particularly to our members from that city.

CIPS will be renewing membership for Fort McMurray members at no cost for this year. CIPS Alberta has donated to the Alberta Fires Fund through the Canadian Red Cross.

While response teams were able to save much of the city, there remains a lot of rebuilding to be done. If you care to help, the best way to provide support is by making a monetary donation to the Canadian Red Cross at www.redcross.ca or 1-800-418-1111. A donation from an individual is matched by the Government of Canada.

If you are in Edmonton, where many of Fort McMurray evacuees have fled, there are numerous organizations where you could help or donate to, which include, but are not limited to: the Edmonton Food Bank, the Edmonton Humane Society; and the Salvation Army.
