Vancouver City Council issues statement on Maui wildfires

August 10, 2023

The Vancouver City Council would like to acknowledge our community members who are affected by the wildfires on the islands of Maui and Hawaii. We send our deepest condolences to families and community members who lost loved ones or have family and friends who have been displaced in this horrific disaster.  

In addition to keeping Hawaii in your thoughts, there are many ways we can directly help those displaced or harmed by the fires. Several organizations who provide direct relief have set up disaster relief funds.  

Vancouver’s connections to Hawaii go back to our community’s earliest days and continue today. We are holding you in our hearts as you experience an unimaginable loss.
