Property Information | Columbia Shuswap Regional District

Rapid Damage Assessment

Significant damage to properties has occurred in the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. This online search tool below allows residents to see the status of their properties. 

Further verification and individualized follow up will occur as we move into the recovery phase. If you require further assistance, please contact our EOC call centre at 250-833-3350.

Please note: the online search tool only includes addresses in the CSRD Evacuation Order areas within the North Shuswap. If you can't find your property by using this search tool, please email [email protected] 

Over the past few days, Canada Task Force 1 specialists assessed structural damages, where possible, to provide an initial understanding of the state of homes and properties within the Bush Creek East Fire (K21633).

Active wildfires are still burning in the CSRD. As we gather more information, we will be able to provide a more complete assessment of the affected areas.

We are in this together and empathize with you during this difficult time. Be cautioned that residents learning of the state of their property may feel immense emotions and experience psychological and emotional impacts. We encourage residents to access mental health supports if needed. The BC Mental Health Support Line is available 24 hours a day at 310-6789 (no area code needed). Kuu-Us Indigenous Crisis Line is also available for support and can be reached at 1-800-588-8717.  More information about the resources available to you can be found at

As you prepare to return home, resources are available to help. Residents are asked to stay up to date with the status of Evacuation Alerts and Orders through the CSRD emergency site and via Alertable to receive e-updates. Go online to for information and to view the up-to-date Evacuation Order and Alert areas

This is the most updated information the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) has available and is based on initial rapid assessments. The wildfire remains active, Evacuation Orders remain in place in some areas and the list is subject to future changes.  The purpose of the online search tool is to provide property owners with initial information. The EOC will make every effort to contact property owners who have incurred total or partial losses. We apologize in advance for any discrepancies during this fluid and evolving situation
