Before You Start

Prior to the start of any construction or renovation project, residents of the Township (or individuals acting on behalf of or representing the residents) should meet with the officials in the Building Department in order to ensure that all proper documentation and procedures are in place prior to the construction or renovation.

E-mail the Planning and Building Information Officer or call 613-347-1166 for more information.

Burn Application - Request for Authorization for Open-air Fires
Open air fires may only be burned in South Glengarry upon receiving permission from the Township Office after filling in a Burn Application.

Burn Bans must be respected at all times even if you have obtained a burn permit.

Please provide the information requested and allow time for a response back to confirm that you have permission for an open air fire. Once the township has had time to contact the appropriate fire departments, you will be contacted with authorization for the open-air burn.
