Air Quality Advisories

Updated 8:33 AM July 7, 2015

Metro Vancouver

Metro Vancouver is continuing an Air Quality Advisory issued July 5 for Metro Vancouver and extending it to the Fraser Valley because of high concentrations of fine particulate matter, due to smoke from wildfires outside our region. This advisory is expected to continue until there is a change in the current weather.

Environment Canada

The Ministry of Environment in collaboration with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority has issued a Wildfire Smoke Advisory for the sea-to-sky corridor and surrounding areas because of forest fire smoke that is affecting areas from Howe Sound through Squamish and Whistler to Pemberton and surrounding areas. Smoke concentrations will vary widely as winds, fire behaviour and temperature change. This situation is expected to persist until meteorological conditions change.

Festivals Burnaby Grant Program

Organizations applying for grants to support events and festivals should apply through the Festivals Burnaby Grant Program. This program supports neighbourhood events, as well as small scale and large scale festivals and special events. Application forms are submitted to the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department and are then reviewed by the Executive Committee of Council after which they are reviewed by Council.

Executive Committee of Council

Organizations that are applying for grants that fall outside of the Festivals Burnaby Grant Program (for example, Burnaby residents attending national and international athletic competitions or community groups providing human services to our community) should apply to the Executive Committee of Council.
