Wildfire Contract Opportunities

The Province regularly calls on the services of contractors to support the delivery of cost effective and efficient wildfire management in British Columbia.

Contractors can register with the BC Wildfire Service through the Request for Standing Arrangement competitions (RSAs) that are regularly posted to BC Bid. Once contractors are accepted and issued a Standing Arrangement, Service Requests will be issued for emergency work based on a nearest/best resource methodology. Other 'defined scope' contracts are awarded via competitive processes such as invitations to tender and invitations to quote.

For more information on how to offer your services to the BC Wildfire Service, please follow the links to the relevant area.

Contractors must review, complete and submit the COVID-19 vaccination policy certification.
