The conference will bring together wildfire practitioners from all over BC and beyond. Speakers and workshops will investigate how to make BC homes, communities, and the landscape more wildfire-resilient in the future. This conference will focus on collaboration, community-led initiatives, wildfire management, prevention, ecology, and wildfire resiliency research in British Columbia. BC has a diversity of fire-prone environments that bring a unique perspective to wildland fire challenges and opportunities.

This conference is open to all participants, but will be of special interest to firefighters, First Nations, and local government staff who are implementing FireSmart initiatives within their communities using Community Resiliency Investment (CRI) funding. WUI specialists (e.g. RPFs, RFTs, consultants, contractors, and other land specialists), landscape management agencies, rural or urban planners/managers, Office of the Fire Commissioner staff, emergency management staff, wildfire management staff, Local FireSmart Representatives, and Wildfire Mitigation Specialists will also find the conference useful and informative.

Registration for the conference is now sold out.
