Fire Weather Sector

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"


This data set is a polygon coverage that can be used to identify the location of a fire weather sector, which is an administrative area that represents a local climatic area and is issued by Aviation and Forest Fire Management (AFFM), Forest Fire Management Section for forest fire weather forecasting purposes.

North of the French River, weather sector boundaries closely correspond to the areas used by Environment Canada for public weather forecasting. South of the French River, OMNR combined 25 Environment Canada areas into 6 larger units (E13-18). Fire Weather Sectors are also identified by an official name tied to the sector's general geographical area. The boundaries for these areas can be verified by AFFM, Forest Fire Management Section.

Supplementary tables can be used and are available for download from the additional documentation section.
