The Canadian Partnership for Wildland Fire Science addresses priority research needs by creating a fire science hub

Canada Wildfire Monthly Webinar Series

June 9, 2023, 11:00-12:30 MDT

Far Out: An overview of BC Wildfire Service’s Seasonal Outlooks with Matt MacDonald

There will be no regularly scheduled webinar in July.

Date TBA

BurnP3+: A new multi-model burn probability simulator based on Burn-P3 with ​Chris Stockdale


We have decided to postpone the May webinar until the fire situation in Canada stabilizes. We understand this has been a challenging spring for everyone, and we want to ensure that our participants have ample time to recover before joining us. Once a new date has been selected, we will promptly share updates with you. If you have any immediate BurnP3+ questions, please get in touch with Chris Stockdale at or for questions about the Canada Wildfire Webinar Series, contact

Exchange. Site: St. Dennis National Wildlife Area. Burn: October 2022

The Canadian Wildland Fire and Smoke Newsletter Spring 2023 edition is out! This issue features articles about: 

  • the importance of knowledge exchange and lessons learned through the implementation of the fire danger rating system in Ontario,

  • classifying fuels using data from the Alberta Wildland Fuels Inventory Program,

  • the newly launched Grassland Fire Database, and

  • an opinion piece on wildfire science in a century of emergencies.

Canada Wildfire NSERC Strategic Network

Researchers across Canada are responding to fire in a changing world by assessing risk and danger and honing solutions to better predict when and where fires might occur and how they might behave.

Canada Wildfire Strategic Plan 2022-2027

One of the key goals of Canada Wildfire is to improve the understanding of the science behind wildfires and to help develop more effective methods for managing them. This will involve conducting research in areas such as fire behaviour, fire ecology, and fire risk assessment and using the knowledge gained to inform policy and practice.

The Strategic Plan sets out partnerships as the key to meeting those goals by bringing together stakeholders from a wide range of backgrounds, including government agencies, academic institutions, and indigenous communities; this initiative seeks to create a more integrated and coordinated approach to vegetation fire management.
