The Alberta Bits and Pieces Program is a way for businesses and citizens to submit unsolicited offers of products and services to help others during an emergency or disaster. Originally established during the Second World War, the program coordinated innovative production and procurement efforts from across the country to support the war effort. The program has since evolved to provide critical support to Albertans during emergencies and disasters, including flooding, wildfires, tornadoes and more recently, COVID-19.
The program connects products and services offered by private, retail, industry and non-profit organizations with Albertans looking for help. These manufacturers and suppliers may or may not charge a fee for their products and services.
We encourage all companies, individuals and non-profit organizations who can offer products and services, including personal protective equipment, to submit their offer of products or services to the Alberta Bits and Pieces Program.
During a disaster, private and non-profit organizations, retail suppliers and industry partners are quick to offer help in a variety of ways, including transportation, shelter, food and other products or services.
When COVID-19 hit our province, offers of help came pouring in and continue to this day. Offers of help included:
- commercial vehicles
- trailers and hotel rooms
- food and water services
- hospital gowns
- other personal protective equipment
