Township of Alberton


Welcome to Alberton!

For accessibility information click here.

September 1/21:  MNR Restricted Fire Zone ended at 12:01 a.m. Given the wet conditions, the cooler temperatures and more rain in the forecast, the fire ban in Alberton is completely rescinded.  If rain doesn’t materialize over the weekend and hotter days return, the Fire Chief will consider allowing only cooking fires.

As always, anyone burning must:

  • obtain a burn permit
  • notify the Burnpermit website to activate your fire permit before igniting a fire
  • have a suitable means of extinguishing the fire
  • do not ignite a fire if winds are or may exceed 16 km/h (10 mph)

For the most up-to-date information on fire restrictions, please go to the Alberton, Chapple, Emo & La Vallee Fire & Emergency Services Facebook page or @ACELFireEmergencyService.
