Parks Canada takes Wildfire preparation seriously and measures are underway to reduce the risk from potential wildfires to Waskesiu and neighboring communities.
A strong risk reduction plan is key to ensure public safety, enhance visitor experience and protect resources.


Visitors and residents are advised that #1 plastic items and plastic grocery bags are accepted for recycling in Waskesiu and Prince Albert National Park. Please place such items (clean and rinsed) in the designated bins located throughout the townsite. Residents are asked NOT to place any face masks or rubber/latex gloves in the recycling bins. These items are a health hazard for waste management workers and potentially contaminate large volumes of recyclable material. 

The East Boundary Fuel Break reduces the risk of wildfire to the north and east of Elk Ridge and McPhee Lake communities.
