Burning Ban Fully Lifted 

The Burning Ban and Fire Restrictions enacted on August 13th, 2016 for South Bruce Peninsula have been now been fully lifted. 

We would like to thank the residents and visitors of South Bruce Peninsula for their cooperation over the past weeks in ensuring the safety of our community with regards to fire. 

The Town of South Bruce Peninsula would like to remind residents & visitors that they must continue to follow the Open Air Burning by-law 17-2013 when conducting an open air fire. The bylaw can be found on our website or call our office at 519-534-1400 x133 for more information. 

Even with the amounts of rain we have received recently, please be extremely cautious when burning as the vegetation in the area is still fairly dry. 

We will continue to monitor the effects of the weather and issue updates as necessary. 

Please also note the Fireworks By-law 122-2015 states that no person shall set off any fireworks except on Victoria Day, Canada Day or Independence Day or the day immediately preceding Victoria Day, Canada Day or Independence Day unless a permit has been granted by the AHJ. 

Thank you again for your continued cooperation.
