With climate change, current research predicts an increase in forest fires in the wildland-human interface or WHI; several inhabited areas will be more at risk in the years to come. Despite this threat, there is currently no available fire risk assessment process for these areas. This study is the first assessment of the current and future wildfire exposure in WHI areas in Canada.
