TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS IN PARTS OF PARRY SOUND AND SUDBURY DISTRICTS DUE TO FOREST FIRES

Pursuant to the Emergency Area Order signed July 21, 2018, an Implementation Order has been issued by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry prohibiting access and travel in portions of Parry Sound District where there are public safety hazards as a result of increased fire activity from Parry Sound #033.

The Order restricts travel, access and use in an identified area (see attached map below) and may be modified regularly to reflect changing fire conditions.

This measure has been put in place to ensure public safety while allowing fire personnel to safely and effectively suppress the fires in the identified area. 

If a member of the public believes that access within the restricted travel area is necessary for non-recreational purposes, please call to 705-746-4201 to request a travel authorization permit.  MNRF will review the request for access based on the rationale provided, local fire activity, and the potential fire risk.

See the restricted travel and access areas on this PDF map (Note: this map gets updated regularly).
