MNRF Fire Restriction ZoneWednesday, August 8, 2018
As of July 24th MNRF has implemented a Restricted Fire Zone that includes all of South Algonquin.
It is illegal to set a fire within the affected area. Failure to comply could result in a fine of up to $25,000 and three months in jail. This includes the use of charcoal equipment(e.g. BBQs, Hibachis).
Even though during a Restricted Fire Zone commercial campgrounds can have campfires under certain conditions, the Township continues to have a "Step 4" fire ban which does not permit fires at commercial campgrounds.
For further information on the Township fire ban please see By-Law 2018-567.
