Recovery Phase

OKIB's Emergency Management Program coordinates and communicates emergency measures and information to OKIB members and residents living on OKIB reserves. We have entered the recovery phase and are working to assist members to get back to normal.

This page will be used to communicate recovery information to members.

OKIB Food Replacement Program

The Okanagan Indian Band Food Replacement Program is a program to support community members returning home with adequate food supply after an emergency.

The Food Replacement Program is in place to support our community members with food and nutritional requirements upon returning home at the start of the OKIB Recovery Phase. If you are an OKIB Member living on OKIB IR1 this program is for you.
