Managing wildland fires

Parks Canada is a global leader in managing forest fires. 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.

As a member of the Canadian Inter Agency Forest Fire Centre, we work closely with other Canadian Fire Management Agencies, including provincial and territorial agencies, in delivering our fire management program. Our collective resources are routinely shared in order to best address fire management priorities.

In close collaboration with our partners, we are currently putting our fire management and suppression capability to use across the country during this fire season.

For more information on our management of particular forest fires in national parks, please visit the individual park pages.
