In an announcement Thursday April 2 by the Minister for Natural Resources and Forestry, it was indicated that the Town of Renfrew falls within the boundaries of the Ontario legislated fire region, which has been designated a Restricted Fire Zone. As a result all burning is banned within the Town of Renfrew which also suspends the privileges to those who have purchased their 2020 Recreational Open Air Burning Permits.
Once the Provincial designation of a Restricted Fire Zone has been lifted we will advise on the reinstatement of issued permits and the opportunity for others to purchase new permits.
Any burning within Town boundaries may be interpreted as a violation of the Provincial Emergency order in addition to violations of the town by-law and potentially subject to fines from both levels of government.
The list includes the following: baseball diamonds, soccer fields, frisbee, golf locations, tennis, platform tennis, table tennis and pickleball courts, basketball courts, BMX parks, skate parks, all off-leash dog areas, all portions of park and recreational areas containing outdoor fitness equipment, all outdoor allotment gardens and community gardens, all outdoor picnic sites, benches and shelters in park and recreational areas.
Due to this New Emergency Order, all Renfrew Recreation Amenities will be closed immediately and until further notice.
Please visit https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/r20104 for further information and a complete list of all outdoor recreational amenities that are now closed.
Please visit the Government of Ontario's website concerning the Corona Virus for up to date information at Government of Ontario/Corona Virus
