Open Fire Ban Lifted

Effective at noon Pacific Time on Thursday, September 16, 2021

The five CVRD fire departments have announced that the open burning prohibition has been rescinded.

By rescinding the prohibition it means campfires under 50cm are once again allowed. For larger fires please contact your responding fire department to see what restrictions may be in place.

In Electoral Area C, fire protection services are provided to residents in fire protection areas by the Courtenay and Oyster River fire departments. Mt. Washington fire service is also included in this area.
