Controlled open-air burning for agricultural purposes may now proceed in accordance with the guidelines.

Residents are reminded that recreational fires are not permitted in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The lifting of the open air burning ban has no impact on the current prohibition of fires, tents and barbecues in public parks and on beaches in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
