Open air burning is permitted inside our urban and rural areas but only if specific criteria are met including property size, device specifications, adherence to fire safety rules and with a valid burning permit. Recreational open air burn permits can be purchased online for $27.00 at https://fire.cityofnorthbay.ca/suppression/burning-permits-and-by-law/
