Violators could face up to a $25,000 fine.

A fire ban is in place for Banff due to dry conditions.

The fire ban covers the entire national park and includes all  open fires, except for:

  •  Portable propane fire pits;
  •  Gas or propane stoves and barbecues;
  •  Propane or gas-fuelled lanterns, and;
  •  Patio heaters (propane, catalytic or infrared/radiant). 

An air quality statement is also in place for Banff National Park along with most of southwest Alberta from the smoke of the BC wildfires.
