Safety is Parks Canada's number one priority. Every year, multiple wildfires occur in the mountain national parks.

Wildfires and other natural hazards are a part of the national park experience. Through our national fire management program, we are committed to reducing the risk of wildfire and its impacts as well as restoring forest health and biodiversity.

You can reduce the impact of an unfortunate circumstance by being prepared for an emergency situation and informed of the wildfire status.
