Legislation and Planning

Land use planning helps us foresee problems so that we can lessen the risk of wildfire.

Reviewing provincial and municipal legislation can help you learn more about land use plans.

If you are a community leader, find out how you can use FireSmart in your community planning. FireSmart – Protection Your Community From Wildfire has detailed information on legislation and planning in Chapter 7: Land Use Planning.
