Orangeville Fire works to make sure that the environment is safe for everyone. We keep a registry of all locations that are considered Standing Sensitivity Receptors in the Town of Orangeville Outdoor Fire Bylaw. This includes:

  • health care facilities
  • seniors' residences
  • long-term care facilities


If you have a sensitivity to fire or smoke, you can apply to be added to the Sensitive Receptor Registry. You will need to renew your application every year in January to stay on the registry.

No burn permits will be issued to properties within 45 metres of those on the registry. If a burn permit has already been issued in the area, it will be revoked.
