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
