Banff National Park

In May 2023, Banff National Park will be hosting the first WTREX Canada!

WTREX (Women-in-Fire Training Exchange) is an intensive 12-day training exchange that combines practical live-fire training with indoor learning and discussion to advance participants’ qualifications and experience in wildland fire operations.

WTREX is an opportunity to engage participants of all different genders, ethnic, and racial backgrounds to explore the growing role of women in fire management while also serving as a training opportunity to enhance their understanding of Incident Command System, fire ecology, communications and outreach, leadership, prescribed fire planning and more. This is an interagency event that will bring together fire managers and practitioners from various federal, provincial and territorial agencies.

To apply, fill out the application by February 15, 2023. For additional inquiries about applying, email fire-training-qualification-formation-feu@pc.gc.ca
