Proposed By-law Changes

A new Fireworks By-law will reflect the changing needs in the community with respect to when fireworks are discharged. The changes will:

  • Recognize Canada Day, Victoria Day, Diwali, Chinese New Year, and New Year’s Eve as observances, which would permit residents to also discharge fireworks on these days;
  • Include additional fire safety requirements when discharging consumer fireworks;
  • Establish minimum safe distances from vulnerable and industrial properties;
  • Set acceptable times for discharging of fireworks; and
  • Enhance neighbourhood safety by only permitting non-aerial fireworks to be discharged by residents. 

Review the draft By-law
