Land within municipal boundaries is not affected, as local fire stations set forest fire prevention bylaws.

However, anyone burning any material, piled or unpiled, more than two metres in height or three metres in width, and stubble or grass fires over an area of 2,000 square metres must still first obtain a burn registration number.

Campfires must still be less than a half-metre wide by a half-metre tall.
