Under the direction of the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers and in accordance with current jurisdictional mandates, the federal, provincial, and territorial governments have been co-operating on the establishment of the Canadian Wildlands Fire Strategy (CWFS). The CWFS will seek to balance the social, ecological, and economic aspects of wildland fire to deal with both the root causes and the symptoms of current and potential fire management issues. It is designed to facilitate the development and implementation of an innovative approach to wildland fire management in Canada that will foster resilient communities and an empowered public, develop healthy and productive forest ecosystems, and incorporate modern business practises. This report describes the current state of wildland fires and its management in Canada, a vision for a desired future state, and recommendations on how to initiate the necessary changes over the next ten years.
