Thank you to the more than 650 people who shared their feedback on the use of fireworks in Whitby earlier this year.

On May 9, 2022, Whitby Town Council authorized an exemption to its Fireworks Bylaw to again, allow for the use of fireworks on Diwali in 2022. Town Council also approved an extension for Town Staff to continue to review survey feedback and explore changes to its fireworks regulations and the by-law for 2023.

This extension will allow staff to review all of the survey data in detail and make recommendations based on feedback received from the community.

A reminder that fireworks in Whitby are currently only permitted on private property on New Years' Eve, New Years' Day, Victoria Day, Canada Day and Diwali from dusk to 11 p.m.

Get Involved

Whether you enjoy fireworks or have concerns, now is the time to have your say.

Here’s how:

  • Complete a survey between now and March 21 through Connect Whitby

Next Steps

Feedback collected will help inform Whitby Town Council’s decision on whether additional fireworks regulations or permitting is needed.
