Do you not have to have permission from property owner to get said fire permit ?
Remember this discussion is on west stave not anywhere else
So a permit to have a fire in your back yard is sort of a moot point isn't it
I hear you don't need a permit for a fire in China either
Anywhere in the Mission Forest District the permit is free, the back yard fire permits are $20.50 now (I have one of those as well). You have to apply for the special occasion permit. Just tell them you are going on a Family camping trip and they will issue a permit.

A permit is required and must be approved by the Mission Fire/Rescue Department.
Special Occasion and Ceremonial Burning Permits
Special Occasion / Ceremonial Burn Permits are issued year round (except during District of Mission Burning Bans) for the purpose of allowing residents to have a Special Occasion or Ceremonial fire. The following are examples of this type of permit: Girl Guide/Boy Scout campfires, religious and cultural ceremonies, and family events.
Note that there are restrictions to the size and location of the fire. All fires must be supervised by an adult at all times and extinguished fully. It is not permitted to cause unreasonable nuisance to any other person in the neighbourhood because of drifting smoke, ash or unpleasant odour.
There is no charge for these permits, and applications can be picked up at Fire Station No. 1 (33330 – 7th Avenue) or obtained from this website:
