Open Burning Prohibition

In order to limit the risk of starting forest fires, effective beginning noon July 29, 2010 and until further notice, all open burning is prohibited within Nisga‚Äôa Lands. 

This prohibition does not apply to areas regulated by village government burning bylaws. Where village or regional bylaws are in place governing the use of open fire or smoke management, contact those authorities for more information before lighting up.

These restrictions are published under the authority of Section 57(3)(a)(i) of the Nisga’a Forest Act.
