The integrity of fire-dependent forest types will be maintained through prescribed burns. The park's fire management program uses remote sensing to monitor post-burn changes on the landscape annually. The Area Burned Condition Class measures will be used as per the PCA Fire Monitoring Plan.

Fire plays an important role in maintaining health of forests and grasslands, and maintains biodiversity by creating a mosaic of varying age structure. The fescue grasslands of the Foothills Parkland Ecoregion were historically maintained by fire, both from natural causes and by First Nations. More than a century of fire suppression has contributed to loss of open grasslands due to shrub and aspen encroachment. The Area Burned Condition Class (ABCC) measure is designed to be evaluated and reported as a condition monitoring measure within the Parks Canada Agency National Ecological Integrity (EI) Monitoring program in all national parks with fire-dependent vegetation.

The following standard is used to evaluate Parks Canada Agency’s goal to manage wildland fire and conduct prescribed fire activities to restore and maintain the ecological integrity of park lands. A 20% natural fire cycle is the set percentage that allows fire to play a role as a natural disturbance in ecosystems while being realistic and achievable considering physical and financial constraints, the variability in wildland fire regimes in MRGNP and the need to balance public safety. The 20% long term average was obtained by analysing the variation in area burned in national parks of different sizes, fire regimes and recent wildland fire management history. This area burn target should be achievable and maintained on a yearly basis, irrespective of wildland fire activity in the period of analysis.

Elk Island National Park uses the Area Burned Condition Class (ABCC) method to evaluate the ecological impact of fire on the landscape and the success of utilizing fire to maintain a mosaic of vegetative composition and structure for healthier populations of native species. Area burned is derived from Landsat imagery, and is updated as needed. This measure uses the same database as forest area burned.

Fire plays an important role in restoring health to our forests and maintains biodiversity by creating a mosaic of forest stands of varying age structure. Forests in the Montane and Subalpine ecoregions have become overgrown and dense. Fire history studies have suggested that fire use by First Nations was common, although probably not ubiquitous. The removal of most human caused fires by the beginning of the 20th century along with fire suppression and landscape fragmentation since that time have greatly decreased area burned and modified fire regimes.

Prince Edward Island participates in the National Forestry Database by contributing yearly summary data, including: forest inventory, wood supply, forest fires, forest insects, forest products, silviculture, revenues and pest control product use. The National Forestry Database is Canada's Compendium of Forestry Statistics, serving as our national source of credible, accurate, and reliable forestry statistics. The principal role of the National Forestry Database is to collect and compile national forest data and forest management statistics. The National Forest Database serves as Canada’s credible, accurate, and reliable source of national information on forest management and its impact on the forest resource.
