Fireworks Bylaw

Note: Applications to set off fireworks this Halloween must be received by October 24, 2022.

Any person eighteen (18) years of age or older may apply for a Fireworks Permit to fire, set off or explode Family Fireworks or Display Fireworks by submitting an application to the Fire Chief.

To prevent possible noise impacts of fireworks on wildlife, fireworks cannot be discharged within 200 metres of the designated Environmentally Sensitive Areas of Roberts Bay and KELSET (Reay Creek). See if you are in an area where fireworks are prohibited by checking out these maps:



Applications for Family Fireworks Permits, once completed, are to be submitted to the Fire Department for authorization. Applications can be dropped off in person, mailed to the department, or sent electronically. The $10.00 fee can now be paid online, or through cash or cheque. Please contact the Fire Department for more details by either email or 250-656-2121.
