Province providing money for emergency shelters across B.C.

The provincial government is providing $1.6-million for emergency shelters across British Columbia.

The money is expected to fund close to 1,000 shelters to ensure access to a safe and warm place at night during severe weather.

Additional spaces will be available in 75 communities from now until March 31 when a community issues an extreme weather alert.

The province also funds outreach teams that work at winter shelters and on the streets helping connect people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with housing and support services such as income assistance and mental health services.
