Annual Provincial Wildfire Risk Season


Each year, in March, the Province begins its Annual Wildfire Risk Season.  However, this year, due to the extreme weather conditions experienced this winter, it was delayed in starting until April 22. 


In 2014, the necessity of a burning permit was removed from legislation as a requirement to burn.  This was replaced with the Wildfire Risk website, which is updated daily at 2pm for notification if you are allowed to burn after 2pm, 7pm, or not at all.  Here is the link to check conditions across the Province. Burning Restrictions.  If you need to burn, you need to check the website out first to see if it is legal.  Please contact your local Department of Natural Resources Office for further information.
