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

Canada Wildfire Monthly Webinar Series


Grassland Fire Research Database:

Analysis of the Impact of Fire on Grassland Productivity and Diversity

with Dinyar Minocher and Roy Vera-Velez

Date: September 8, 2023, Time: 9:30 to 11:00 am MDT

Join us to hear about the role of the Canadian Prairies Prescribed Fire Exchange (CPPFE) as an avenue that enables various organizations, landowners, and groups to adopt effective fire practices. You will also learn about the grassland fire research database, a key initiative of the CPPFE designed to disseminate the most relevant scientific information available to fire practitioners. The latest findings from a quantitative analysis of the grassland fire research database, examining the impact of fire on both grassland productivity and diversity will also be explored.

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.
