The five year average for provincial wildfires caused by humans is greater than 900 but in 2017, only 741 were reported.

More than 1200 wildfires in total were reported.  Alberta government officials attribute the drop to new measures in the forest protection area.

The Whitecourt Wildfire area had 29 fires in 2017, a figure also below the five year average.  Less than 12 hectares burned in total.
