Canada Day is one of four holidays a year when short-range fireworks are allowed on private property, without the need for a permit, in Brampton. Under the by-law, fireworks are also permitted on Victoria Day, Diwali and New Year’s Eve.
 
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 permitted on the street, sidewalks, within City parks or on municipal or school properties.
 
When using short-range fireworks on private property, residents must follow these safety precautions:
 
  • Have a container of water or a hose line that’s filled with water available to extinguish fireworks
  • Never light a firework or hold a lit firework in your hand, other than a sparkler
  • Never throw or point fireworks at other people
  • After using sparklers, place them in a container of water to fully cool before disposal
  • Allow all fireworks to fully cool before disposal

Every year, fireworks vendors are required to undergo City training before they are licensed to sell fireworks. This year, no trainings were held and no licences were issued. If residents see fireworks being sold in stores or elsewhere in Brampton, they are asked to report to Service Brampton through the Brampton 311 mobile app, online, or by calling 311. Residents are also asked to contact Service Brampton if concerned about the use of prohibited fireworks, or public gatherings of more than five people due to COVID-19.
