Fire updates for the 2020 season will begin as wildfires are reported.
We wish to continue to remind the public that if travelling in areas where backcountry travel is permitted, please remember to stay on developed trails and to check in as required. If you are using an ATV, stop frequently to check areas around the engine and exhaust for debris and carefully dispose of any debris found. A small shovel, axe and fire extinguisher should be carried with your ATV at all times.
Open fires are prohibited from April 1 to November 15 annually, except under a burning permit or in enclosed, approved fire pits such as grated campfire pits in provincial campsites where permitted. Never leave outdoor fires unattended and always ensure they are fully extinguished before leaving. Please check for Provincial fire and travel restrictions and municipal burning restrictions before your outdoor activity. Activities in wooded areas involving fireworks or sky lanterns may also require written authorization during this time period in certain areas. For information on required authorization or permits, please contact your local Conservation and Climate office.
Please report all wildfires to 1-800-782-0076 (TIPS / Wildfires). (Please note the TIP line is only for reporting wildfires and not for general information.)
