The 2023 Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit was an important five-day gathering (formally known independently as the FireSmart BC Conference and the WUI Symposium). Our week-long focus was on community wildfire resiliency and wildland urban interface training kicked off with a three-day in person conference at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, where we listened to captivating speakers who are leaders in wildfire resiliency. We also shared best practices as well as our collective experienceand insights through informative workshops, and expert panels. This was followed by two days of training exercises in North Vancouver for BC’s firefighting professionals.

Our theme for the 2023 event was Partners in Progress, which recognizes that collaboration andpartnerships are critical for keeping BC communities safe and building fire resiliency.
