2017 SWPI Program

All funding streams under the 2017 SWPI are now closed to applications.

All SWPI program materials were updated in March 2017.  A summary of changes [PDF - 252 KB] is now available.

The BC Wildfire Service has made available an external Quality Assurance (QA) utility to aid clients in checking their spatial information against the SWPI spatial standards prior to submission.  This utility will identify errors in a potential submission so that they can be resolved and corrected, thereby helping to improve submission success and reducing the amount of time a project spends in the spatial review cycle.  Instructions for how to use this new QA utility can be downloaded here.
