Burn Restrictions

Le contenu suivant est seulement disponible en anglais.
Please note that, as of June 6, 2023, the Fire Closure Order has been revoked. Normal operations will resume with regards to burning restrictions.

Check current burn restrictions below before starting a category 1 fire. You may only burn if restrictions allow. Category 1 fires are not permitted between 8am and 2pm. 

If you have a permit for a Category 2,3 or 4, please check the Fire Weather Index prior to burning.

Always check your municipal bylaws, or contact your municipal office, before doing any type of burning. Your municipality may have a burning restriction that overrides the provincial burning map restrictions.

These restrictions are updated daily at 2pm during fire season from March 15 to November 30, inclusive. They are not updated from December 1 to March 14.
