Air Quality Advisories

Posted 10:30 AM July 6, 2015

Metro Vancouver

Metro Vancouver has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver because of high concentrations of fine particulate matter and potential health impacts, 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.

No Charcoal Barbeques in Burnaby Parks

The Wildfire Management Branch has banned open burning in the Coastal Fire Region due to drying weather conditions. Due to these fire restrictions, charcoal barbeques in City of Burnaby parks and beaches are prohibited. At this time, only propane gas barbeques are permitted. Please check back for further updates on whether all types of barbequing will be banned if conditions worsen.

No Smoking in Burnaby Trail Systems

Due to the dry weather and heat that could result in fire hazards, the City of Burnaby advises all trail users that there is NO SMOKING permitted in the Burnaby trail systems. "No Smoking" signs have been posted at major trail heads. The ban will remain in effect until further notice.

Robert Burnaby Park offers a combination of quiet walks and outdoor activities that make it ideal for family picnics or individual exploration.This network of trails in quiet surroundings of forested creek ravine was built during the Great Depression of the 1930s and is still heavily used by walkers and joggers. Nature lovers enjoy the diversity of creeks that flow beneath the towering conifer canopy.
