Fire Bans & Regulations


Fire Bans

COVID-19 - Effective immediately, the Provincial government has issued open burning restrictions for land/garden clearing in our region. No new fires may be initiated and no additional material may be added to existing fires. As cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in BC continue to increase, the BC Centre for Disease Control recommends implementing measures that help to reduce excess air pollution in populated air sheds across the province. There is strong evidence that exposure to air pollution increases susceptibility to respiratory viral infections by decreasing immune function.

Fires in approved outdoor fireplaces are still permitted. See our FAQ Flyer.
