Fireworks Safety
Canada Day is one of four days a year when short-range fireworks are allowed on private property in Brampton without the need for a permit. 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). That’s roughly the height of a Brampton Transit bus or a basketball hoop.
 
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 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. The City offered online training to vendors. No fireworks licenses have been issued for Canada Day. If residents see fireworks being sold in stores or elsewhere in Brampton, they are asked to report them to Service Brampton by calling 311 or 905.874.2000 (outside of Brampton).
