This could permanently alter Canada's boreal forests, which serve as significant carbon sinks. Strategies such as national coordination, Indigenous-led prescribed burning, and rethinking community planning are suggested to mitigate future risks. The transformation of forests from carbon sinks to carbon sources could exacerbate climate change, creating a feedback loop. Immediate and long-term investments in forest management are crucial.
