Fireworks By-Law Review

Posted on Wednesday March 04, 2020

Residents are invited to an upcoming Open House to learn about a proposed By-law regarding the use of fireworks within the Town. We are also looking for your feedback and input as we prepare a final draft for Council’s consideration.

March 24, 2020 | 5 – 7 p.m.
Town Hall, 6311 Old Church Road, Caledon East

A new Fireworks By-law will reflect the changing needs in the community with respect to when fireworks are discharged. The changes will:

• Recognize Canada Day, Victoria Day, Diwali, Chinese New Year, and New Year’s Eve as observances,
• Include additional fire safety requirements when discharging consumer fireworks,
• Establish minimum safe distances from vulnerable and industrial properties,
• Set acceptable times for discharging of fireworks, and
• Enhance neighbourhood safety by only permitting non-aerial fireworks to be discharged by residents.
