Manitoba's smoke management plan encompasses activities and systems to lead to a significant ongoing reduction in crop residue burning.
If you must burn, you must adhere to Manitoba's Controlled Burning program by checking the daily burning authorization
Note: Daily authorizations are made by 11:00 am.
Permits are being issued for producers who need to safely burn within municipalities that are NOT authorized for burning. For more information about obtaining a burning permit, please contact your nearest MAFRI GO Teams office or centre. Completed permit application forms may be faxed to 204-745-5690.
When a municipality is authorized for burning, burning permits are not required unless the land located within the boundaries of the City of Winnipeg or within a Burning Permit Area . Any permits issued by other local authorities are also required.
The regulation entitled Burning of Crop Residue and
Non-Crop Herbage (Regulation 77/93) was enacted in 1993 to
deal with the legal aspects of crop residue burning.
Burn only within the hours specified in the daily authorization.
