Restrictions To Travel And Activities In The Woods Of Nova Scotia Lifting – Except In Shelburne County

Effective from 12:01 a.m., Monday, June 5, the Province has decided to ease travel and activity restrictions in wooded areas across all regions, except for Shelburne County and any locations with evacuation orders.

Minister of Natural Resources and Renewables, Tory Rushton, emphasized the significance of woods and trails for the physical and mental well-being of many Nova Scotians. He acknowledged that weather conditions have improved in the province, but urged caution. While the burn ban remains in effect, individuals are encouraged to responsibly enjoy outdoor activities.

The revised regulations now permit activities such as hiking, camping, fishing, and the use of vehicles in wooded areas. However, the provincewide burn ban remains in place, and a hefty fine of $25,000 will be imposed for violations.

It is important to note that evacuation orders are still in effect, and individuals are urged to steer clear of all wildfire-affected areas.
