Open Fire Pits

If a resident thinks someone has an illegal open air fire, or does not have a permit, they can report it by calling the non-emergency dispatch centre at 905-456-5700, ideally when the fire is lit.

Mississauga outdoor fire pits are permitted as long as residents are complying with the Open Air Burning bylaw. There are some restrictions on size of the fire pit, when you can have open flames burning and where the fire pit can be located.

For backyard fire pits, smokers, or other outdoor appliances, you do not require a permit, however, residents may be directed by the fire department to put out any fire that is considered a nuisance.
