If you’re planning to set off fireworks for the long weekend, you need to make sure you’re following the City’s by-law, rules and regulations.

The City allows fireworks without a permit on Victoria Day, Canada Day, Chinese New Year and Diwali; however, if you’re hoping for a different day to use your fireworks, you’ll need a permit. A City fireworks permit will outline the address where the fireworks can be used.  As stated in the by-law, you can’t set off fireworks in Mississauga:

·         on a public street or roadway

·         in a park without a valid approved permit

Fireworks should only be purchased from a licensed retailer permitted to sell fireworks in Mississauga.  

Have a complaint about fireworks in your neighbourhood?

·         On private property, call 3-1-1 from Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you’re outside of City limits, call 905-615-4311. For emergencies after hours, call 905-615-3000.

·         On public roadways, contact Peel Regional Police.

·         In parks, contact the facility watch program at 905-615-4060 (24 hours).
