Province Announces Restrictions During Wildfires

Posted on Aug 09, 2016

Your safety while walking is paramount. As of noon Tuesday, August 9th, please be advised of the provincial ban on travel and activities in wooded areas.

This includes hiking, camping, fishing, and the use of off-highway vehicles. People can still access beaches and provincial parks, but trail systems will be restricted. These restrictions also apply to forestry, mining and any commercial activity on Crown land. Those who conduct commercial activity on Crown land will require permits which can be obtained at local Department of Natural Resources offices. Hunters and fishers will also require travel permits.
