PLEASE NOTE (As per new 'Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act' (PIPEDA):
" I understand that my personal information collected by Outland will be released to the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), following successful completion of the SP-100 Forest Firefighter Training course. The information may be used by the MNR to contact individuals should employment opportunities be available. It may also be released to other forest firefighting agencies for the purpose of employment opportunities.
Successful completion of the SP100 Fire Fighter Training Course does not guarantee employment.
Forest Fire management in Ontario is the responsibility of the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), Aviation, Forest Fire and Emergency Services Branch. Of the approximately 400 annual entry-level positions (crewmember) within MNR, the vast majority are filled by returning staff. However, a turn-over rate of roughly 30% is expected annually meaning approximately 120 new fire fighters are hired each spring. The turn-over percentage varies depending on location so each Fire Management Headquarters should be contacted directly as to actual job opportunities. During periods of escalated fire activity, the MNR may hire Supplementary Fire Fighters to assist in a variety of roles. However, these are short-term, temporary contracts that end when forest fire activity returns to normal. There is also privately run fire fighting crews (Type 2) that the MNR relies on during escalated fire periods. These Type 2 fire fighter providers should be contacted directly as to actual job opportunities. You are encouraged to visit our website at http://ontario.ca/fireranger for more information.
