A charity watchdog group is slamming the federal government for only matching donations to the Red Cross as it collects millions for the residents of Fort McMurray.

.

Tens of thousands of people from the northern oil and gas community have been evacuated or are in the process of being evacuated, as wildfires continue to ravage the area.

.

Canadians have given the Red Cross about $30 million so far and the Canadian government has agreed to match those donations.

.

Kate Bahen of Charity Intelligence Canada wonders if some local organizations are missing out.

.

“It is wonderful to see that support but it is  local front line charities that get completely overlooked.”

.

“When people return to Fort McMurray, it is these charities, the United Way of Fort McMurray, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fort McMurray, Salvation Army Fort McMurray, it is these local charities  that are going to be doing the lion’s share of the work and they do not get the donations,” she said.

.

“All the money is going to the Red Cross.”

.

Key role in rebuilding communities

.

Bahen said it was a cross section of non-profits that helped communities in recent disasters.

.

“Looking back at the Lac-Mantic train derailment, looking back at the Calgary floods in 2013, when we looked at the response, it was local front line charities that we were so impressed with. They were on the ground, they responded quickly and they played a key role in the rebuilding of the communities.”
