Gate Closures for the Weekend of July 19-20

Due to high to extreme forest fire danger, all supervised gates will be closed for this weekend. This includes Iron River (Oyster), Northwest Bay, Buckley Bay, Chemainus (Copper Canyon) and Shawnigan.

All other gates are expected to be closed.

It is advised that individuals take time away from the backcountry as we look to move through this hot, dry spell safely.

  2. It is most likely the gates will stayed close for this weekend. Very generally speaking, the moisture level in the ground will have to change substantially.
