The Fire Department has reinstated cooking permits effective May 15. Small campfires for cooking purposes only are once again permitted. Residents are still required to have a current permit from the Fire Department – please contact them on 250-442-3612 to arrange for a permit.
Other forms of open burning are prohibited year-round by Bylaw 1965.
Please observe current social distancing practices as recommended by the Provincial Health Officer while using a campfire for cooking.
