Open Air Burning and Chimineas

Open Air Burning is legal in Mississauga; however, everyone must ensure outdoor fires are safe by following the Open Air Burning By-Law 140-18, filling out the appropriate permit and paying the applicable fee as outlined in our current MFES Fees and Charges By-law (link is found at the right of this screen).

Chimineas, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor appliances, outdoor fire pits and smoke houses are also legal in Mississauga and no permit is required; however, they must be operated by following the rules and regulations as stated in the Open Air Burning By-Law 140-18.
