Fire Ban Lifted

The campfire prohibition will be lifted in all regions of the Coastal Fire Centre area including Cultus Lake Park and Sunnyside Campground beginning 12:00 noon, Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

Other activities which will now be permitted in the Coastal Fire Centre include:

• The use of chimineas; and
• The use of outdoor stoves or other portable campfire apparatus without a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or Underwriter Laboratories of Canada (ULC) rating.

Although the fire danger has declined in the Coastal Fire Centre due to recent rainfall and cooler, more seasonal temperatures, the public is strongly encouraged to continue exercising extreme caution with any campfire. It is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that burning is done in a safe and responsible manner and in accordance with regulations. Before lighting any fire, check with local government authorities to see if any local burning restrictions are in place.

While campfires will be allowed in the Coastal Fire Centre, Category 2 and Category 3 open fires remain prohibited, including the use of fireworks, sky lanterns, burn barrels and burn cages. These restrictions will remain in place until October 28, 2022, or until the order is rescinded.
