Open Air Burning

 

Article 2.6.3.4. of the Ontario Fire Code reads "Open air burning shall not be permitted unless approved (by the Chief Fire Official), or unless such burning consists of a small confined fire, supervised at all times, and used to cook food on a grill or a barbecue".

 

If a municipality is not located within a Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) designated fire region, open air burning must meet the Fire Code. In addition, if your municipality has a permit system, then a permit must also be obtained and the requirements followed.

 

If a municipality is located within an MNR designated fire region, open air burning must meet both the Forest Fires Prevention Act (FFPA) and Fire Code requirements. An MNR burn permit is not required for small scale burning if certain conditions are met. Otherwise, a permit is required and the MNR will evaluate the safety precautions proposed by an applicant before granting or denying a burn permit. Also, the Fire Code requirement for approved burning must be satisfied. In addition, if your municipality has a permit system, then a permit must be obtained and the requirements followed.

 

The Town of Bancroft requires that a permit is obtained.  Please contact the municipal office, or the Fire Chief for details.
