Ontario won’t immediately ban outdoor fires in much of the province this year like it did for more than a month last year, but that degree of regulation is still possible.
The province has increased base funding for emergency forest fire fighting by $30.2 million and is ensuring safety measures are in place to protect fire rangers during the pandemic.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is lifting the Restricted Fire Zone (RFZ) banning outdoor fires in large parts of Ontario on Saturday, May 16.
Outdoor fires have been banned in much of the province to prevent human-caused fires and aid emergency responders during the COVID-19 outbreak.
