Outdoor Burning Regulations & Bylaw

Outdoor burning is strictly regulated in Kirkland Lake to ensure the protection of property and the safety of people. In 1998, municipal council enacted BY-LAW NO. 98-017 (A By-law Respecting the Control of Fires within the Town of Kirkland Lake Between the Period April 1 and October 31) that sets out the rules and regulations to govern such activities.

If you plan to do any outside burning between April 1 and October 31, you must apply to the Fire Services for a permit. Familiarize yourself with the bylaw BEFORE engaging in any burning activity. Better yet, contact the Fire Services Division. Remember, it's better to be safe than sorry.
