Wildfire Resiliency and Training Summit: Register Today!

Once a year, the FireSmart BC Conference brings together wildfire practitioners from all over BC and beyond. With speakers and workshops, we explore how to make BC homes, communities, and the landscape more wildfire resilient.

This year, formally known independently as the FireSmart BC Conference and the WUI Symposium, the event will be taking place on May 10-14, 2023. Our week-long focus on community wildfire resiliency and wildland urban interface training will kick off with a three-day in person conference at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, where we’ll listen to captivating speakers who are leaders in wildfire resiliency and share best practices and our collective experience and insights through informative workshops, and expert panels. This will be followed by two days of training exercises in North Vancouver for BC’s firefighting professionals.

Our theme for this year’s event is Partners in Progress, which recognizes that collaboration and partnerships are critical for keeping BC communities safe and building fire resiliency. We look forward to celebrating our existing partnerships and creating new ones through valuable networking opportunities, including a full day devoted to bringing BC’s firefighters and FireSmart community together on May 12.
