Fireworks

Fireworks are regulated according to the Explosives Act of Canada. They are considered a class 7 explosive. In the County of Brant you are allowed to discharge fireworks but the display must follow the guidelines in the Explosives Act as well as our fireworks bylaw.

See the full fireworks bylaw.

Key guidelines in the bylaw include:

  • You must be over 18 years old to purchase or discharge fireworks
  • Fireworks cannot be sold except on Victoria Day, Canada Day and 6 calendar days before these holidays
  • Family fireworks cannot be discharged except on Victoria Day, Canada Day or 7 days before and 7 days after these holidays (unless you get a permit from the Chief Fire Official before discharging fireworks)
  • Fireworks cannot be discharged on county land without permission
  • Exhibition fireworks cannot be discharged without a permit from the Chief Fire Official

Firework Types

Family Fireworks

Family fireworks are "low hazard fireworks". These include fireworks showers, fountains, golden rain, lawn lights, pin wheels, roman candles and volcanoes.

These can be discharged without a permit during the holiday periods that are listed in the full bylaw.

Exhibition Fireworks

Exhibition fireworks are "high hazard fireworks". These include rockets, serpents, shells, bombshells, tourbillions, maroons, large wheels, bouquets, barrages, bombardos, waterfalls, fountains, batteries, illumination, set pieces and pigeons.

They also include what the Explosives Act calls "high hazard fireworks generally having a practical use". These include large distress signals, sound, pyrotechnic and smoke signals, railway track signals, distress and line-throwing rockets, salutes, theatrical effects and wildlife control devices.

A permit is required to discharge exhibition fireworks at any time.
