It was announced at noon this afternoon that the campfire ban that has been in place for the South Coast of BC since June 27th has officially been lifted by the provincial government.
Just in time for Labour Day long weekend camping plans, campfires are once again permitted throughout the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction (more information about where that is below). The Coastal Fire Centre is rescinding its campfire prohibition due to forecasted cooler and wetter conditions, resulting in a decrease in wildfire risk in the region.
Campfire Ban has ended in Metro Vancouver and BC Coastal Areas
