Fireworks By-law Restrictions and Safety Reminder

As the Township’s By-law Department gears up for the May long weekend, many are preparing to celebrate with a fireworks display. While fireworks can be a great addition to gatherings, the Township of Lake of Bays reminds residents about a number of restrictions and regulations concerning fireworks to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Regulations: As per the Township’s Noise Control By-law (2021-029), fireworks can only be discharged from dusk until 11:00 p.m. during statutory holiday weekends and Canada Day, provided there is no fire ban in place. Please note that the current Fire Danger Rating is set to MODERATE. Before setting off any fireworks, check the Fire Danger Rating as it can change rapidly.

Pets and Wildlife: While fireworks may delight many, they can be distressing for our furry friends. We encourage pet owners to create a calm and secure environment indoors for their pets during fireworks displays. Additionally, considerate gestures such as informing neighbours with pets about planned fireworks can help alleviate their concerns.

Safe Discharge: When handling fireworks, always prioritize safety. Choose an open area clear of flammable materials, keep a water source nearby, and never allow children to ignite fireworks.

Reporting: Residents are encouraged to report any violations of noise regulations or other by-law related concerns through the Township’s By-law Complaint Portal.
