Do I need a burn permit?

During the provincial Wildfire Season, March 1 to October 31, all burning within the Municipal District of Bighorn requires a permit. Please contact "Agriculture & Forestry" in Calgary at 403-297-8800 to make arrangements.

Outside of the provincial Wildfire Season, residents within the hamlets and residential subdivisions (Ghost Country Place, Kananaskis Settlement) require a burning permit which they may obtain at the Municipal District office at #2 Heart Mountain Drive. Burning permits are not required in the rural areas during this time.

Municipal District residents are only permitted to burn clean wood. No yard waste, construction / demolition waste, garbage or scrap, including anything treated or painted, tires, shingles, etc.
