Fire Pit Permit Applications Now Accepted Online

March 20, 2023

Brandon, MB – Brandon Fire & Emergency Services is excited to announce that fire pit permit applications can now be submitted online via

The new process allows residents to select the type of outdoor burning appliance that they would like to see installed in their backyard, including: 

  • Fire Pit 

  • Outdoor Fireplace 

  • Portable Fire Pit 

  • Stationary Built-In BBQ* 

  • Stove 

Once the appropriate outdoor burning appliance is selected, residents are asked to select their address from a drop-down list, upload a sketch of their yard, and complete the application.  

Effective January 1, 2023, all new fire pit permit applications require a one-time $20 application fee, as set out in the City of Brandon Fee Schedule. Those with an approved permit do not need to re-apply for an existing fire pit or pay the one-time application fee. A new application is only required if there has been a change in information from the original application or in property ownership.  

Once an applicant has successfully completed their application online, a notification email will be sent with payment instructions. Once payment is completed, a member from Brandon Fire & Emergency Services will arrange an on-site visit with the applicant, where final approval is given. More information on the City of Brandon Online Permits Information is available on
