Did you know that approximately 40% of fires are human-caused? Before burning, WLFN members are required to apply for a burn permit with the WLFN Lands Department (click here to download).
Always exercise caution when doing any outdoor burning. This means make sure you have the proper tools, and always check to make sure the conditions are safe (check for wind and the venting index). Consider conducting smaller burns, or wetting areas around the perimeter of the main fire site with a watering can or garden hose to make a fuel break. Never leave a fire unattended. For emergencies, call WLFN Law Enforcement Officer at 250.296.3507 EXT. 7, or dial 911. Once you’re finished, always ensure that the fire is completely extinguished. Use tools and water to wet and extinguish any smoldering ashes.
Registered WLFN Members (voted-on members) are now invited to submit their forms for their 2023 Christmas Bonus, and annual Community Trust distribution payments. To simplify things, members may use the same form to claim both payments at the same time. The 2023 one-time Christmas Bonus entitles each Registered WLFN Member age 18+ to $300. The 2023 Community Trust distribution entitles each Registered WLFN Member to $1,560.
WLFN Finance Department will be depositing these funds by direct deposit only (no cheques will be issued). Please fill out the submission form (below) completely, and attach a void cheque or a bank-printed direct deposit form. Handwritten deposit information will not be accepted. You may indicate on the form if WLFN already has your banking information on file. WLFN Elders turning 60 may now also submit for the one-time Elder Community Trust distribution payment of $25,000. Please submit the Elder payment form prior to your 60th birthday to receive a direct deposit on the Friday following your birthday. Deadline to submit this form and direct deposit information: November 24, 2023. Direct Deposit Dates: December 8, 15, or 22, 2023.
Email completed form to: [email protected]
or fax to: (250) 296-4750
