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.

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.

Whether you visit Barnet Marine Park for an early morning walk, an afternoon picnic with the family or to watch the sunset, you’ll be rewarded by spectacular views of Burrard Inlet alongside remnants of Barnet’s rich pioneering history. The large sandy beach is a popular spot for swimming in the summer. Prefer to be on the water rather than in it? Just launch your canoe or kayak on either side of the swimming beach. No matter where you are in the park, the sounds and smells of Burrard Inlet are a welcome escape from your daily routine.

Many of your steps will carry you over the footprints of generations past. Take a walk along the shoreline, then lay down a blanket and read a book on a warm summer day. Or stop for a rest on one of the many pocket beaches and enjoy those magnificent views of the inlet.
