On Victoria Day & Canada Day

Clearview By-law and Fire and Emergency Services would like to remind residents that fireworks are governed by Clearview Fireworks By-law #08-22 and permitted only on Victoria Day and Canada Day in Clearview Township. 

Fireworks displays can be dangerous and are not permitted on public property or when a burn ban is in place. It is important to use fireworks responsibly, The Ministry of the Solicitor General’s Fireworks Safety Tips include, appointing a responsible adult to be in charge who is aware of the hazards, checking wind conditions before use, staying away from combustible materials and having water on hand. 

Clearview is a community of good neighbours, please use fireworks safely, responsibly and with respect for your neighbours and your community. “Sharing a Canada Day Fireworks display safely with your family and neighbours can be a terrific way to celebrate our country.” Said Mayor Measures, “However, respecting your neighbours and protecting our natural environment remains our social responsibility as Canadians.”

Part of being a good neighbour includes adhering to the gathering limits and public health regulations outlined in Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen and disposing of your fireworks properly and safely.

Fireworks By-law #08-22 will continue to be enforced throughout Clearview Township. The fine for each firework set off outside of Victoria Day and Canada Day is $70. To read the By-law visit www.clearview.ca/bylaws
