Please be advised that the announcement made by the MNRF regarding a fire ban does not cover the entire province only their legislated region.  Click on the following map indicating the regions the ban has been implemented:  http://www.affes.mnr.gov.on.ca/Extranet/Bulletin_Boards/RFZ-EN.pdf

At this time, a fire ban has not been issued within the Municipality of Bluewater and Controlled Burn
permits will continue to be issued as normal until further notice.  

As always, it is essential that you “Burn responsibly”.  The Open Air Burning By-law regulates when, where and how you can have outdoor fires. The By-law regulates the hours open burning is allowed, the maximum size of a fire, the material that can be burned, and mandatory safety precautions.
