Partial Campfire Prohibition Lift

Please note that the Coastal Fire Centre has released a Partial Campfire Prohibition Lift as of today.

Other activities which were previously banned, but will now be permitted include:
• The use of tiki and similar kinds of torches;
• The use of chimineas; and
• The use of outdoor stoves or other portable campfire apparatus without a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or Underwriter Laboratories of Canada (ULC) rating.

Different categories of open burning are explained in the link to the poster below:

While campfires will be allowed in the North Island Central Coast Forest District and Haida Gwaii, Category 2 and Category 3 open fires remain prohibited, which includes back yard burning, industrial burning, and the use of fireworks, sky lanterns, burn barrels and burn cages. These restrictions will remain in place until October 28, 2022, or until the order is rescinded.
