If you are going to have a campfire, remember to keep the size of your campfire no more than 1.5 feet in height and a diameter no larger than 3 feet.

Be advised that for open air fires, such as brush burning, they can be lit no earlier than two hours before sundown and must be extinguished no later than 2 hours after sunrise. This is Ontario Law during the burn season which runs from April 1st to October 31st. The size of an open air fire cannot exceed 6.4 feet in height, and cannot be larger than 6.4 feet in diameter.

With all fires, please do not leave any fire unattended, ensure there are no combustible materials within 10 feet of the fire, and you must have sufficient means to safely put the fire out.

Open Air Fire Permits must be activated prior to burning by following the instructions on the front of your fire permit. Recreation Fire Permits (campfires) do not need to be activated.

BYLAW 2014-1267, Regulating and Setting of Fires, is being updated at the June 12th Meeting
