Diwali is today (November 4), and Brampton residents are reminded only short-range fireworks are permitted to be set off during celebrations.

Residents are permitted to set off fireworks on private property without the need for a permit four days out of the year, including on Diwali.

However, the caveat is they must be short-range fireworks—only fireworks that travel three metres (or 10 feet) or less are legally permitted.

Setting off fireworks that travel further than this can result in fines ranging from $500 to $5,000.

Additionally, by-laws only permit setting off fireworks on private property—setting them off on sidewalks or streets; or within City parks, schoolyards or any other public space is illegal.

Further, all vendors selling fireworks must have completed training through the City, and have obtained a license in order to do so.
