Fireworks Safety
Residents are encouraged to attend the fireworks display at Chinguacousy Park at 10 pm on July 1.

Fireworks users: Canada Day is one of four approved days in a year when short-range fireworks are allowed on private property, without the need for a permit. Short-range fireworks are those that tend to travel less than three metres (10 feet) when set off (e.g. fountains, wheels, ground spinners, sparklers). All other rocket-type fireworks are banned in Brampton. The City reminds residents that fireworks are not allowed to be used on the street, sidewalks, within City parks or on municipal or school properties.

When using short-range fireworks on your property, you must follow these safety precautions:
• You must have a container of water or a hose line that’s filled with water available to extinguish fireworks
• You must never light a firework or hold a lit firework in your hand, other than a sparkler
• After using sparklers, place them in a container of water to fully cool before disposal
• Allow all fireworks to fully cool before disposal

Fireworks vendors: This year Brampton introduced a mandatory annual course for fireworks vendors before they can be licensed to sell. A list of vendors licensed to sell fireworks in Brampton for Canada Day will be posted on the City website closer to Canada Day.

• Fireworks FAQs
