Burning season has officially begun in the Village.  Please note we do not allow open burning in the Village. However, there is a permit system for residences to have outdoor fire pits.  For details, visit the Village’s web site —  Under Public Safety, Fire Department, you will find our by-law explaining how that works. These permits are re-issued each year at no charge by the Fire Department. To make an appointment to get a new permit, or renew an existing permit, please call Fire Chief Harry Farrell, in the Fire Department Office at 450-8711.

Please Note: Burning is NOT PERMITTED any time that the Dept. of Natural Resources prohibits outdoor  burning due to extreme fire conditions. In order to determine if burning is permitted on any given day, please contact DNR at 1-866-458-8080 or visit the Provincial website ( and search “Forest Fire Watch”.

Anyone who fails to comply with this By-law shall be liable to a penalty of $250 for each offence (section 13 of Bylaw No. 20).  For more details, click here.
