Impact to Travelers
August 28, 2023 – The Province of British Columbia and the Northwest Territories continue to be under States of Emergency due to localized wildfires, allowing all levels of government to direct resources to regions affected by wildfires. These fires impact local communities and may impact travel within the Central Interior and Southeast areas of the province, including Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley. In areas with active fire, this could include road closures and travel restrictions.
While the fires remain mostly in Central British Columbia, they do have a wider impact, including smoke distribution across regions throughout BC and Alberta. This smoke primarily impacts air quality and scenery and can change rapidly, depending on weather and prevailing winds. For the most up-to-date information please reach out directly to Entrée Canada. Our Operations team is monitoring the situation closely to ensure we have up-to-date information. We will continue to update our Travel Advisory as information becomes available, or should the situation change.
Our thoughts are with all those impacted, and we are grateful for the efforts of the firefighters across the province and territory.
