Wildland fires are fires that burn in treed or forested areas.

Wildland fires can help natural ecosystems renew and stay healthy, but wildland fires near developed communities can cause property damage. They can also affect our health and safety.

The wildland fire discussion paper provides information on the Province's policy for wildland fire hazards.
