Once the situation is safe, the evacuation will be rescinded. If there is no damage and critical services are operating for the area, you can return. In the event of damage or interruption to critical services, re-entry to a community may be prioritized and gradual re-entry will occur under the guidance of EMC and local/First Nation governments.
Evacuation rescinds and cancelled Evacuation Alerts will be announced by press release, at reception centres and group lodging facilities, and broadcast on Cowichan Alert. Follow Cowichan Alert, news, and media platforms for updated evacuation alerts, orders, and evacuation rescind orders.
