“Open burning” is using fire to dispose of piled materials. Open burning is allowed by permit on Bowen Island from October 15 to April 15 when the ventilation index allows.

Only burn when Metro Vancouver’s Open Burning Advisory indicates that burning is allowed. You must call 604-436-6777 to determine if open burning is allowed on each day that you plan to burn. This information is available daily after 8:30 am.
