Check Wildfire Conditions and Campfire Bans
British Columbia implements certain fire bans and restrictions when there are significant risks to BC’s population and environment. There are three categories of fires that can be affected by restrictions – open fires, campfires and forest use.
Before you embark on a trip you can check to view the current restrictions and bans in effect as well as a map view. Please note that these restrictions do not include areas which are within the boundaries of local government and subject to local bylaws – check first for local government policies before starting any fire. Additionally, in some Wildlife Management Areas and Conservation Lands in B.C., campfires are never allowed.
You can also visit DriveBC for information about current road conditions, major events, variable speed limits, BC Highway Webcams, border delays, or to report a Highway problem. This can be especially helpful during the summer months of wildfire peak season.
