Family Fireworks Permits

The Fireworks By-law regulates the sale and use of fireworks in the Town of Stouffville. You can set off consumer fireworks without a permit on Victoria Day and Canada Day or the two days before or after these holidays. If you want to set off fireworks on any other day, you need to apply for a permit.

Family fireworks rules

If you are considering hosting your own backyard fireworks event, you need to follow these rules:

  • You must be at least 18 years old to set off any fireworks, or be supervised by someone at least 18 years old
  • You can only set off fireworks on your own property unless you’ve received consent elsewhere
  • You cannot set off fireworks on a street, park or any other public space without written consent
  • You cannot set off fireworks into any building, doorway, structure, vehicle or any other place where it might create a danger or nuisance to any person or property
  • You cannot set off firecrackers

Display fireworks permit

Only a federally approved fireworks technician can discharge display fireworks with a permit. Please submit a Display Fireworks application form to us at at least two weeks before the event date.

We will review the application and if necessary, conduct a site inspection before granting the permit. Pyrotechnic style fireworks typically used indoors must also follow the instructions listed for display fireworks. Upon approval, we will also notify municipal law enforcement and York Regional Police.
