It said open-air fires, including outdoor fireplaces, are not allowed in most densely populated urban and suburban areas. To see if your property is eligible for a permit, the online burn permit application tool can be used.

Some devices do not require a permit, including: outdoor natural gas, propane or ethanol fireplaces; and approved cooking appliances, including gas, charcoal or propane barbecues/hibachis, or gas or propane outdoor fireplaces (must be ULC approved). The service added that the device must be designed and intended only for cooking food in the open air and can’t be used to burn wood, tree limbs, branches and/or non-compostable material.
