2024 wildfire season forecast: What’s in store for Canada this year?


Wildfire season in Alberta and British Columbia are off to an early start, and the Canadian federal government will provide an update on Thursday about what the nationwide picture is expected to look like in 2024, after the devastating impact of fires last year.

Emergency Preparedness Minister Harjit Sajjan, Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault, and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson will hold a joint press conference to discuss the wildfire outlook for the season.

B.C. and Alberta, where wildfire season began early, will likely be a key focus. At least one fire was already listed as out of control and continuing to grow in the Quesnel area in B.C.’s interior as of last month.
