• During wildfire risk season (15 March to 15 October), no domestic brush burning or campfires are allowed between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm. Burn restrictions are updated daily at 2:00 pm (you also need to follow municipal bylaws for your area). To report a wildfire or violations of the fire restrictions, call 1-800-565-2224 or 911.
  • Starting 16 May 2024, the fine for violating daily burn restrictions is $25,000. Daily burn restrictions also now apply to provincial, municipal and private campgrounds (National parks are under the jurisdiction of Parks Canada). Learn more: Fire Proclamation (PDF).
