Canadian Forest Service
Resource Date:

The Canadian Council of Forest Ministers has spearheaded the development of the Canadian Wildland Fire Prevention and Mitigation Strategy (the Strategy). The Strategy outlines a vision, goals, commitments, and targets to provide a clear path forward for wildland fire prevention and mitigation efforts in Canada. The Strategy highlights the need for a whole-of-society approach and builds upon the progress already made by all governments, Indigenous Peoples, and other partners to manage wildland fire. The Strategy reflects over two years of engagement by the CCFM with municipal, provincial, territorial, federal and self-governments, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis representatives, academia, industry, and many others across Canada. Together, our combined efforts can build a more wildland fire resilient society.
