Town of Milton Burn Permits

Milton, Ontario, Canada

Now, with a valid permit, you can use chimineas and other outdoor fireplaces for open air burning in urban Milton. If you live in rural Milton, expect to apply for your annual open air burning permit as usual.

The cost of a permit is $30.00 CDN non-refundable. Your permit is valid for one calendar year. If you provide an email address your permit information will be emailed to you, otherwise permit information will be sent by regular mail.

Note: Each property only requires one (1) Open Air Burning Permit. If you can meet the requirements to have a 'Agricultural Fire' you do not need a 'Brush Fire' permit. Similarily, if you meet the requirements to have a 'Brush Fire' you do not need a 'Outdoor Fire Container' fire. If you have any questions please contact us before you apply as the cost is non-refundable.

This is why the Milton Fire Department created the following short video to help residents with a quick and easy way to get all the information they need to know about Open Air Burning, the hazards and concerns. We strongly encourage all residents to take a few minutes to watch the video and learn about the By-law and what they can do to protect their homes and families.
