Welcome to Fire Prevention Canada (FIPRECAN), the national voice of fire prevention and education in Canada. Please take a few minutes to peruse our site for valuable information that may save your life, and the lives of your loved ones. Statistics show that, on average, fire kills eight people each week in Canada, with residential fires accounting for 73% of these fatalities.

Incorporated in 1976 as a registered charity, FIPRECAN is a non-profit organization. Our primary mission is to increase visibility and awareness of fire prevention nationally, through educating the public directly and through the Fire Service. Fire Prevention Canada is privileged to have His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada as its Patron.

Fire Prevention Week 2013 will be observed from Sunday, October 6th through to Saturday, October 12th. The theme for this year is "PREVENT KITCHEN FIRES ©"


The fire community will gather in Ottawa for the national launch of Fire Prevention Week on October 3, 2013 at the Government Conference Centre, 2 Rideau Street, across the street from the Chateau Laurier Fairmont Hotel. Contact us for an invitation at or call 613-247-9207.
