The Wildland Fire Management Working Group and CIFFC

 A Working Partnership

The Wildland Fire Management Working Group (WFMWG) was formed in 2007 and is one of the four Working Groups/Task Forces reporting to the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers (CCFM).  The WFMWG provides strategic advice and policy guidance on wildland fire management issues to CCFM, and promotes strategic improvement to wildland fire management in Canada and the implementation of the Canadian Wildland Fire Strategy. The WFMWG is comprised of ADM-level representation from the federal government (Canadian Forest Service) and the 12 provinces and territories with wildland fire management programs.

Recent WFMWG annual work plans have been implemented through a working partnership with CIFFC. The WFWMG provides strategic direction, project oversight and coordination, and financial resources allocated through the CCFM.  CIFFC provides a project management framework through its Working Groups and Communities of Practice, and provides staff resources made available from its member agencies for project delivery.  Mutual benefits are achieved from taking advantage of synergies between the WFMWG workplan and the activities of appropriate CIFFC groups.
