Earth Hour

Saturday, March 25, 2023
8:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Join the hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world that unite each year to support this massive environmental event. Turn off your lights for one hour and help shine a light on climate action.

The City of Brampton has participated in Earth Hour since 2008 by turning off all non-essential lights. We encourage residents and businesses to be a part of this grassroots movement.

Lighting affecting public safety, security and services - such as streetlights, traffic lights, park pathway lighting and parking lot lights at City facilities will remain on.​​

Stay Safe!

Brampton Fire & Emergency Services recommends that you use flashlights and battery-powered lanterns during this time.

If you use candles, please:

  • Use sturdy candleholders. Ones with glass shades or chimneys are best.
  • Keep candles safely away from anything that can burn.
  • Keep candles and matches away from children.
  • Do not leave a lit candle unattended.
  • Blow out the candle if you leave the room.
