Dear Friends and Neighbours,


With the Victoria Day long weekend coming up, the City is reminding residents about fireworks rules, safety tips and proper disposal.


Fireworks can only be set off on private property without a permit on Victoria Day and Canada Day. A permit is required to set off fireworks on all other days throughout the year. It is not permitted to set off fireworks in a City park, street, a parking lot or any private property that is not your own.


Residents setting off fireworks with members of their households on their own private property need to make sure they have the proper sized yard and that there are no buildings or trees nearby.


Please remember that fireworks have the potential to cause serious injury, so be sure to take the time to prepare, protect and prevent fireworks accidents.


It is also important to safely dispose of fireworks and used fireworks should never be put in the Blue Bin. To dispose used or unused fireworks, fireworks should be submerged in water and soaked overnight. The soaked fireworks should be wrapped in a plastic bag and then put in the garbage bin.


More information is available at toronto.ca/fireworks.


In COVID-19 news, some vaccination clinics serving our community have opened up eligibility to those ages 12 and up. Check out the clinics in your area here.


Best wishes to all for a happy and safe long weekend!


Frances
