Burning Permit

The by-law to govern open air burning and the issuance of fire permits is currently under review. Please watch for updates.


Burning permits are required for all outdoor burning within the Township of Dorion. All incinerators must be an approved burn barrel with a fireproof screen to limit flying debris. You can read the full by-law here for more information. [Link: Burning Permit By-law] (Please note: all by-laws provided in PDF format on this website are for informational purposes only.
