Outdoor fires are prohibited across the Montréal agglomeration by several by-laws (bonfires, fireplaces, burning branches or green waste, burning garbage, burning construction debris, garden fires, etc.). Outdoor fires produce smoke that contains a number of toxic substances.
Please note that domestic use of a certified appliance such as a barbecue, a patio heater or similar appliances do not require a permit.
