Open fires are prohibited from April 1 to Nov. 15 annually, except under a burning permit or in enclosed approved firepits such as grated campfire pits in provincial campsites.
During the wildfire season there may be times when high to extreme fire danger conditions require the Manitoba government to implement fire and travel restrictions within the province.
Restrictions are limits placed on any activity that has the potential to cause a wildfire under the current or forecasted fire danger conditions. These activities could include travel, industrial operations, agricultural burning, fireworks, outdoor fires, and campfires. These restrictions are issued to protect you, your property and your community.
Manitoba municipalities are responsible for the implementation and maintenance of their local burning restrictions. Municipalities are asked to contact the Office of the Fire Commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org when implementing or changing the status of its municipal burning restrictions.
