Fireworks Permits

Residents are reminded that fireworks are no longer permitted except for special celebratory holidays such as Halloween and New Year's Eve, at the discretion of the Fire Chief.


Under the Fire Services Bylaw No. 2314, 2014, a permit is required to discharge consumer fireworks. Permits have been implemented in an effort to balance the inherent ‘fun’ aspect of neighbourhood fireworks while enabling Squamish Fire Rescue to exercise more controls when and if required. Permits will only be issued for widely-celebrated events and cultural celebrations, at the discretion of the Fire Chief.

The permit is free and can be applied for online in just a few minutes. The application form is linked below for your convenience. A copy of the permit will be emailed to you upon completion of the application. Please print and/or save the permit to your mobile device.  A copy of this permit MUST be available for viewing by a member of Squamish Fire Rescue, RCMP or Bylaw Services upon request.

Consumer fireworks will only be permitted for use on private property.  Any person applying for a permit to discharge consumer fireworks must be at least 19 years of age and obtain written consent of the owner of the property upon which the fireworks display will be located, if the person applying for the permit is not the owner.

The permit application will be open approximately one week before permitted holidays.
