Safety is the top priority for the City of Brampton. A ban on fireworks:
- mitigates the risk of fires, injury and property damage
- reduces air pollution and debris
- reduces excessive noise
- protects animal habitats
The fines for failing to comply are as follows:
- Discharge or in possession of fireworks without permit: $500.00
- Sell, distribute, display or offer for sale fireworks: $1,000.00
- Permit, allow or cause to be set off fireworks on private property without permit: $500.00
- Fail to comply with an order: $1,000.00
The City may also, at its discretion, issue a summons requiring an individual to attend court, where fines could range from a minimum of $500.00 to a maximum of $100,000.00.
*When fireworks are discharged from a private property, the property owner is deemed to have permitted, allowed or caused their use, and may face charges associated with the offence.
