It’s not the stability they were looking for, but B.C.’s search and rescue groups have received a one-off 10 million dollar boost.
Those groups currently run on donations, gaming grants, and the work of its volunteers.
Meanwhile the BC Search and Rescue Association has tried to get the province to sign onto a more stable funding model.
Minister of State for Emergency Preparedness Naomi Yamamoto says talks to get a permanent model are still a work-in-progress.
“We are endeavouring to get back to BC Search and Rescue this Spring with some recommendations that we can work on together.”
Yamamoto says the 10 million is on top of the 6.3 million the government provides each year.
