Forest fires are an important part of the Canadian landscape. The number of fires and area burned can vary dramatically from year to year, but there are more than 8000 reported wildfires in Canada during a typical year, burning an average of 2.5 million hectares or 25 000 square kilometres. Only 3 percent of fires in Canada reach a final size greater than 200 hectares, but these fires are responsible for 97 percent of the total area burned. This map shows the forest fire ignition causes for fires greater than 200 hectares.

The area burned by fire in Banff National Park between 1910 and 2017 is contained in this dataset. The number of hectares burned was calculated either by a GPS track of the fire perimeter (<200 hectares) or by remote sensing (>200 hectares). Measuring area burned allows Parks Canada to calculate departure from historic conditions and to track the progress of fire restoration.

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.
