Once on site, firefighters used a ladder truck to bring the tranquilized animal down from the tree.
The bear was then assessed by conservation officers and, once they had determined that it was in good health, it was relocated on Sunday morning.
The whole incident resulted in a number of incredible photos and videos shot by the Langford Fire Department.
