CIFFC members are made up of the Provincial, Territorial and Federal (Parks Canada and the Canadian Forest Service) agencies responsible for wildfire management in Canada. All members have representation on the various National Committees and Working Groups. Membership is not open to the public, vendors or other government institutions outside of the wildland fire management agencies.
How do I apply to be a firefighter?
CIFFC does not hire firefighters, please reference the wfx-fit FAQ and contact page here to find direct links to the provincial, territorial fire management agencies and Parks Canada. These organizations are responsible for fire management and response within their respective jurisdictional boundaries and as such they hire firefighters. Note that hiring and application deadlines vary and can be as early as December or January for the upcoming fire season.
How do I volunteer to help fight fires?
CIFFC does not coordinate the mobilization of volunteers. Wildland Fire Management Agencies do not engage volunteers to fight wildland fires. Volunteer opportunities supporting evacuees may exist with local authorities and voluntary sector organizations such as the Canadian Red Cross.
Where do I find fire Information?
