• Residents Reminded to Obtain Permits Before Lighting a Fire


The Uxbridge Fire Department is asking all residents to obtain a fire permit and follow all...

burning requirements before lighting an outdoor fire this spring. There are several types of permits available depending on the needs and the size of the property. It is also important to know that the use of clay, ceramic, or metal burning pots are prohibited in the urban, residential and populated areas of the Township of Uxbridge.

“We like to make sure everyone is aware of the rules for burning, and are taking all of the necessary precautions to prevent problems” says Fire Chief Phil Alexander. “Part of the process is calling the Fire Department prior to lighting your fire to learn if there are any burning restrictions at the time you are planning to burn. Unfortunately if homeowners are not observing our fire by-laws and we respond, it can result in fees for service to the homeowners who aren’t in compliance.”

Fees for burning permits as well as fees for service are outlined in By-Law 2007-209 which can be viewed on the Township Web Site http://town.uxbridge.on.ca/fire

Where to obtain permits:

Permits can be obtained from the Municipal Office at 51 Toronto St. S. or the Fire Station at 301 Brock St. W. during regular business hours, Monday to Friday 8:30am-4:30pm.

Prior to burning, call 905-852-9038
