On March 17, 2020, the City of Fernie announced that it activated its Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) in support of Provincial measures responding to the ongoing COVID-19 Situation.

The EOC provides a central point of information sharing, planning, and coordination for the municipality, and ensures coordination across all local, regional and provincial agencies involved at this time. The City of Fernie is committed to working with the lead agencies in reducing the impact of COVID-19 in our community to protect the health and safety of our citizens.

Service level reviews, examining needs, swimming through the sea of wants. It’s really an everyday process in local government, one that keeps us balancing strategic priorities designed to insulate our community from poor investment choices that do not support our infrastructure needs, against the always present ‘emerging needs.’

The City of Fernie is pleased to announce the award of the City’s 2020 Discretionary Grants.

Each year Council allocates $18,000 as grants-in-aid to community groups for events, projects, or programs that support local arts, culture, environment, heritage, recreation, or health activities. In 2020 Council received a total of $43,300 in funding requests to this program.
