All outdoor burning requires a burn permit.

Be sure that you learn the rules and requirements for all open air burning within the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio before you light a fire. 

Please see the Open Air Burning By-Law 12-12 for full details.

Only registered property owners are able to obtain a burn permit. If the property is rented out to another person, they will require authorization first in writing by the registered property owner.
