Campfire Ban Lifted – Cooking Permits Now Valid Again

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.
