The Forest Fire Hazard is expected to rise throughout the week and into the weekend due to no precipitation and warm temperatures. We are expecting the Ministry of Natural Resources Restricted Fire Zone order will likely remain in effect through the weekend.
We are reminding residents before the upcoming Victoria Day weekend that during a Restricted Fire Zone, fireworks cannot be lit or set off within the area affected by the Restricted Fire Zone.
More information about Restricted Fire Zones can be found on the Outdoor Fire Restrictions page of the Ministry of Natural Resources website. Follow us on social media or check shuniahfire.com/emergency for updates specific to the Municipality of Shuniah.
If you see a forest fire or an open fire during a restricted fire zone, call 9-1-1.

The Municipality of Shuniah's Age-Friendly Steering Committee is conducting a custom needs assessment to inform the Age-Friendly Action Plan with assistance from a grant received by the Ontario Senior's Secretariat. The Age-Friendly Community Survey is designed to gather feedback from Shuniah residents who are 55 years of age and older or a caregiver of an aging resident.
The purpose of this assessment is to identify the necessary changes and services required to ensure aging residents are able to age-in place, enjoy good health and fully participate in their community. We want to know what we are doing well, what weakness need to be addressed, and how you would like us to address the issues.
