There is currently no burning ban in place. 

This means that residents can return to having open air fires including open air cooking fires, camping fires, and approved incinerator or brush pile fires that are in compliance with the regulations set in the Township’s burning By-law 2012-68.

By-law 2020-54 - Open Air Burning By-law (comes into effect on January 1, 2021 and By-law 2012-68 will be repealed at the same time) 

Additional Information 

A burning ban can be put in place during the "Fire Season" which is the period from the 1st day of April to the 31st day of October in each year, pending weather conditions as per the By-law, however the Director of Fire and Emergency Services  has the authority to put a full burning ban in place at any time. 

The guidelines for burning are found in By-law 2012-68. Any questions concerning the by-law should be directed to the Fire Chief  Darcy Knott at 613-376-3027 Ext 2234.
