Campfire Restrictions in the Whiteshell

Posted on: May 10, 2018  |  

With the tinder dry conditions Whiteshell Cottagers Association contacted Sustainable Development for some clarification on some of the terms used in their bulletin.

Is it possible to get clarification on what constitutes an approved fire pit?

An approved fire pit is a fire pit that has a hard base for a bottom which will not allow the fire to burn into the soil usually steel, bedrock, a thick layer of gravel or cement type material, metal sides to contain the embers and a metal grate top that should be used when burning (to prevent high burning fires and chance of flame or sparks/embers from escaping)

Could you confirm that the intent of the message is to say that campfires are not allowed outside 8pm & 8am even if they are in approved fire pit.

Campfires in approved fire pits are only allowed from 8:00 PM until 8:00 AM – No other types of fires are allowed at all.

Will a campfire ban be considered given that all outdoor fires have been banned in Winnipeg and most of the RMs?

Currently the ban that you reference is in place but there is a possibility that as conditions change additional restrictions may occur. If this is the case it will be communicated as the previous information has been.

Well folks – we’ve reached 10,000 followers on our Facebook page – a long time personal goal of mine. Having administered this page since 2017 & having now reached this goal it will soon be time for me to move on & have someone else at WCA administer the page. Hoping to hand it over before end of February.The biggest jump in followers occurred during the 2021 Wildfires and during the 2022 floods as WCA kept cottagers & other park users informed- often 16 hour days during these events, always 7 days a week. And does anything say “Whiteshell” more than Daniel Alexander’s amazing wildlife videos & photos? We’ve had some of our Facebook posts reach well over 100,000 people & some posts were picked up by the media and made the news.Big thank you to Kristin Pingatore, Deborah Sequin & Angela Hogan who originally set up the WCA Facebook page & then trusted me to administer it all these years.Lastly a big thank you to all of you who contribute to our page by submitting photos, videos, news & stories.Be sure to support the WCA & whoever takes over this page in the days to come. ...
