in Information, Sturgeon County

Sturgeon County Council approved Burning Bylaw 1375/16 on October 11, 2016, which will see fire permits carry through year round instead of their current schedule of April to October.

Why the need for the change?

Year-round permitting will make it easier to track where burning is occurring and enhance the safety of Sturgeon County residents. General concerns from the public have been heard in regard to burning on municipal land and designated areas and this will also afford staff the opportunity to enhance fire prevention initiatives with the goal of preventing wild fire and grass fires held over from winter burns.

The proposed amendment includes new definitions but not limited to the following:

Garden and Yard Debris
Large Brush Piles
Windrow Piles
Construction Materials
A site inspection must be conducted by Sturgeon County Emergency Services prior to any permit being issued for a Structure Fire, Large Brush Pile Fire, or Windrow Pile Fire.

Do I need a permit for my fire pit?

Use of approved Fire Pits as listed in the proposed bylaw are permitted throughout Sturgeon County. A Fire Permit is not required under this Bylaw for an attended fire that is lit in an approved Fire Pit for recreation, cooking or warming purposes.

Where can I get more information?

The bylaw is posted here.

If you require additional information, please contact Fire Chief, Pat Mahoney 780-939-8411 or email pmahoney@sturgeoncounty.ca.

Where can I get a fire permit?

Fire Permits are FREE and available online or by phone 780-939-4321.

Failure to obtain a fire permit and/or the violation of any terms and conditions set out in their Fire Permit may result in a fine.

Responsible Burning
All open fires and burning barrels, with the exception of campfires used for warming or cooking purposes, are permitted on lots larger than one acre.

Things to remember before you burn:
Winds must be less than 15km per hour.
Sufficient tools, equipment and quantities of water readily available for the size of the burn being conducted
When burning in a burn barrel, barrel must be constructed of non-combustible material, free of damage, covered with a metal mesh screen with openings no more than 13mm, be located on a non-combustible base and be located at least 3 meters away from property lines or any combustibles.
You must obtain a fire permit and adhere to all of its conditions.
Take precautions to ensure the fire is under control at all times.
You are responsible for conducting a fire that is safe.
You must attend your fire at all times.
Smoke must not impair visibility on a roadway or highway
Consideration must be given to neighbours to avoid physical discomfort.
Please ensure your fire is completely extinguished.
Fire permits may be withdrawn if environmental conditions change.
Fire permits will not be issued when a County-wide fire ban is in effect.
Non-owners wishing to obtain a fire permit must provide written permission from the landowner. If you are interested in obtaining free Fire Smart hazard assessment booklets for your home and property, please contact Sturgeon County Protective Services at
