BURN BY-LAW in PDF format
  Open Burning

is defined as  fire where the products of combustion are not conveyed to and disposed of by an approved chimney. ANY OPEN BURNING MUST BE CONTINUOUSLY ATTENDED BY THE PERMIT HOLDER, property owner or a competent person appointed by them for the duration of the fire. It is their legal obligation to tend the fire and to ensure it is extinguished upon completion. Any fire may be ordered to be extinguished if it is deemed to be a hazard by the Fire Chief or his representative.

ALL COSTS INCURRED FOR EXTINGUISHING A FIRE MAY BE CHARGED TO THE PROPERTY OWNER IF IT RESULTED FROM CARELESSNESS OR A DISREGARD OF THE BURNING REGULATIONS.
