Burning restrictions

There are no fire restrictions in place for Yukon communities.

Yukoners are reminded to exercise caution when using fire; a wildfire can still catch and spread quickly. Do not build campfires larger than needed, and ensure all fires are completely out before leaving them.

A burn permit is required from April 1 to September 30 in all areas of Yukon. You must also check with the local municipal authority for additional restrictions on burning within the municipality. All burn permits are automatically suspended when the local fire danger rating is moderate, high, or extreme.

What do these ratings mean?
We rate the fire danger rating to show how dangerous a fire would be if it started. A higher fire danger rating means more dangerous conditions.
What does N/R mean?
N/R means the station is not reporting. Sometimes this happens when it’s too early in the season or the station is being worked on.
