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 0049-2003, 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 are also legal in Mississauga and no permit is required; however, it must be operated by following the rules and regulations as stated under Manufactured Outdoor Fireplaces in the Open Air Burning By-Law 0049-2003.
