Fireworks are a popular form of recreation — from baby gender reveals to community events to cultural celebrations.  Here’s what you need to know to enjoy fireworks safely:

  • To use fireworks in Edmonton, you must have a Fireworks Permit. Please allow 5 working days for a permit to be processed.

  • Fireworks cannot be used on public property (i.e. public parks, schoolyards, golf courses) unless you have a certified professional.

  • Fireworks are permitted on residential property.  Ground products are recommended as most properties do not have adequate space for aerial products (as per Federal Regulations). 

  • Review the safety information provided by the Government of Canada.

Work with a Fire Prevention Officer to: 

  • Pre-approve the site for your community or public event.

  • Determine what products you can use on your residential property BEFORE you purchase.
