The City of Mississauga has created an online form for complaints about fireworks ahead of the long weekend.
Currently, Mississauga allows indoor fireworks only four days a year: Victoria Day, Canada Day, New Year’s Day and Diwali.
The city said it received 300 complaints about fireworks in 2022. The new form has been created to streamline the complaint process so that residents can lodge complaints at any time of the day or night.
The neighboring city of Brampton has banned the sale or use of personal firecrackers in 2022, with some councilors saying the use of fireworks has “gone out of control”.
Residents are encouraged to review the Mississauga Fireworks Ordinance and ensure compliance with the ordinance before celebrating any fireworks event. Residents concerned about fireworks outside city limits can also call 311 or (905) 615-4311.
