Residents are reminded they can set off fireworks without a licence on Victoria Day and Canada Day only, as well as the day before and after each of these holidays. A licence is needed to set off fireworks on any other day of the year. Remember to carefully read and follow the label directions on fireworks’ packaging. It is against the Town’s by-law to set off fireworks in Town parks/amenities. Remember to follow the COVID-19 provincial guidelines. For more, visit
