Acting Mayor Garth Frizzell says there is a strain on social services in the city, but they are working with local organizations constantly.
The strain is from the number of evacuees who called Prince George home this summer, some of which are still here.
Although, no one is accessing the services provided to evacuees by the city when there is an emergency, local food banks have seen an increase in people.
Saint Vincent de Paul says they have seen 30-40 new people per day since the beginning of the summer.
Schools have also seen an impact in the minor population uptick, as 11 new classrooms were created in September, something which wasn’t in the works at the end of June.
Frizzell says he’s heard of two families relocating this summer with their kids from wildfire stricken areas.
