A Fire permit is required for all burning, with the exception of a campfire in the Forest Protection Area of Alberta.
The 2022 wildfire season in Alberta has begun. Permits are now required to burn within the Forest Protection Area of Alberta. Residents living outside the Forest Protection Area (FPA) can contact their municipality or local authority for more information about fire permit requirements. A fire permit is a tool Alberta Wildfire uses to keep track of burning being done throughout the province. This ensures that when smoke is reported, we can look into our system and check whether this is a wildfire or a permitted burn being done. To report a wildfire call 310-FIRE (3473).
To get a fire permit for the Grande Prairie Forest Area please call:
Grande Prairie - (780) 814-1648
Spirit River – (780) 814-1983
Valleyview – (780) 524-6576
