Ontario will contribute $500,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help its relief efforts for people displaced by the wildfires in Alberta, it was announced on Wednesday.

Ontario has also provided emergency management personnel to support local firefighting efforts. As of today, over 60 firefighters, three strike team leaders and 16 incident management and supervisory staff from Ontario are on the ground in Alberta.

Anyone who would like to make a personal donation can do so through the Alberta Fires Appeal from the Canadian Red Cross.

The federal government has committed to matching donations made to this appeal.
