FireSmart Canada Home Development Guide

2023 – FireSmart Canada

Wildfires are a natural part of our ecosystems. Living where wildfires can occur puts homes at risk, but it is possible to live safely with this natural event.

Development standards play a significant role in reducing the potential impact a wildfire will have on a community. A building is more likely to be destroyed in a wildfire when it is in a high-density area where fire is able to easily transfer from building to building. The potential for damage intensifies when flammable building materials are used.

The recommendations in this guide will reduce the risk of wildfire to your home and neighbourhood.
