Fire bans reduce the risk of human-caused fires. Governments issue fire bans as a result of extreme fire hazards, during a wildfire event, or as a preventative measure as part of being FireSmart.
Provincial Fire Ban: Due to reduced wildfire hazards, the provincial fire ban in place for all Crown forests north of the Churchill and for the west side of the commercial forest has been lifted.
Municipal Fire Bans: There are currently less than 50 communities with fire bans in place. These fire bans are issued by local municipalities and may change without notice.
Please call your local municipal office for the most recent information or call the control burn line at 1-866-404-4911.
Provincial Parks Fire Bans: Due to extreme fire hazards, the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport has issued a restriction on all open fires in a number of provincial parks.

During the ban, self-contained portable gas heating devices and fire pits, barbecues, pressurized stoves, and charcoal briquettes will be permitted for cooking and heating purposes at park discretion for the duration of the ban.
National Park: A fire ban for Prince Albert National Park has also been lifted.
