Current Fire Bans

Effective September 14, 2021 the Special Areas Board has issued a Fire Advisory for Special Areas No. 2, 3 & 4.

The Special Areas Board advises extreme caution and that only necessary burning should take place. The public is asked to ensure all fires are attended to and completely extinguished before leaving unattended.

Safe campfires are allowed in campgrounds and random camping areas, but may be restricted if conditions deteriorate. Incinerator fires are permitted at a minimum distance of 30m away from structures and 3m away from combustible materials. Controlled Burns may be restricted.

To complete a controlled burn, please contact your local district office during business hours to complete a controlled burn notification form.

The Towns, Villages or Provincial Parks within the Special Areas handle their own restrictions and should be contacted directly.
