The federal government is granting Avalanche Canada $25 million to help keep outdoor enthusiasts safe from what it called “Canada's deadliest natural hazard.”

Ottawa said the money will be used to expand “the size and scope” of Avalanche Canada's safety programs to new areas, including Northern B.C. as well as parts of Quebec, Newfoundland and the Yukon.

“Living in coastal B.C. so close to nature, and so close to the mountains is undoubtedly an incredible privilege. But, we know that Vancouverites, and Canadians across the country need access to the right information, training and protections, to safely enjoy everything that our amazing natural environment has to offer,” fisheries minister and North Vancouver MP Jonathan Wilkinson said Monday.
