Annual agricultural burn permit

If you are applying for an Annual Agricultural Burn Permit, you must provide a copy of your Farm Business Registration Number at the time of application. If you are not the owner of the property, you must provide written authorization from the landowner giving you permission to apply for a permit for that location. This permit will allow you to burn windrows fires overnight from Monday to Friday. These types of fires are usually left to burn for days at a time due to their size (i.e. 50 metres in length, 5 metres in width and 3 metres in height) and require supervision at all times.

Spring burn ban in effect

Due to the early arrival of warm weather the Ottawa Fire Services has placed a burn ban into effect in order to prevent the rapid spread of fire due to grass and brush fires. This ban will remain in place until conditions improve and the green grass starts to show through tall dead grass. Residents are reminded that they must first obtain a Fire Permit before they have a fire in the open air. Permit holders are then required to call 613-580-2880 prior to burning to ensure there is not a burn ban in effect. Fire Permits are available at all Client Service Centres and Ottawa Fire Services’ Rural Administrative offices. A list of these sites, hours of operation and more information on Fire Permits can be found on ottawa.ca or by calling 3-1-1.
