Burning Permits

Outdoor burning is not permitted in Burnaby.  CSA-approved appliances specifically designed for cooking food, and that are fuelled by propane, natural gas or charcoal briquettes are allowed.

Permission may be granted by the Fire Chief for a one-time special event fire. Download our Burning Permit Application, and print it out to turn it in at the Burnaby Fire Department.

Permits are available at Fire Station #1. The fee for a permit to burn is $100.00, including tax. We accept cash or cheque. With any questions, contact us or visit our Fire Permits page for some general information. These links can be found on the right side of this screen.
