Fire management at Parks Canada

Parks Canada’s Fire Management Team actively manages all wildfires in national parks, including wildfires in remote locations.

Our first priority when managing a wildfire is to ensure the safety of the public and fire personnel, and the protection of property and cultural resources. We are also committed to protecting important ecological values and public and private infrastructure. Parks Canada is a global leader in managing forest fires.
