Fighting Wildfires

To protect Canadians from wildfires, a re-elected Liberal government will dedicate $500 million to:

  • Train 1,000 new community-based firefighters to ensure we are ready for future fire seasons.
  • Work with provinces and territories to provide firefighters with the equipment they need to fight fires and stay safe, like Canadian-made planes to increase provincial aerial firefighting capacity.
  • Support and expand Indigenous-led fire crews and build capacity to better incorporate Indigenous traditional knowledge strategies in fire management.
