Evacuation Payment


Alberta's evacuation payment is meant to ease the costs of being away from your primary home due to an evacuation order during a disaster. It is one-time funding to help pay for immediate housing needs and day-to-day purchases such as groceries, gas, and more. It is not intended as income replacement.

Albertans who qualify will receive:

$1250 for each adult age 18 and older when the evacuation order was given
$500 for each dependent child under 18 when the evacuation order was given

Residents can refer to https://alberta.ca/emergency for the most current information, including dates when mandatory evacuation orders were issued. This can be found under the "Communities under evacuation" section.
