No fireworks without a permit, mayor reminds Mississauga residents this weekend
Published July 31, 2021 at 3:37 pm
While many residents are undoubtedly eager to set off some fireworks this holiday weekend, Mississauga mayor Bonnie Crombie is reminding them that they’ll need a permit first.
“As we enter the Civic Holiday long weekend, please remember that fireworks are not allowed without a permit,” Crombie wrote on Twitter.
The city likely wants to avoid a repeat of what happened on Canada Day this year, during which a number of illegal fireworks caused multiple small fires in parks where trees, shrubs, benches and waste receptacles had caught on fire.
According to the city, fireworks cannot be used on a public street, park or road without a permit — and they can only be used at home without a permit on Victoria Day, Canada Day, Chinese New Year and Diwali.
Residents can apply for a permit at the city’s website, but keep in mind that the city asks for applications to be sent at least 14 days before the event.
REMINDER: As we enter the #CivicHoliday long weekend, please remember that fireworks are not allowed without a permit.
