In the best interest of community safety, the CSRD, like many other regional districts and municipalities in BC, has banned the sale of any fireworks within Electoral Areas C, E, and F of the CSRD.
Before detonating any fireworks within Electoral Areas C, E, and F you require a valid Fireworks Permit. Fireworks may only be used, set-off or discharged with a permit authorized by the CSRD Fire Services Coordinator. Anyone who sets off fireworks without a permit may be fined a minimum of $200 and/or be subject to formal enforcement proceedings for each incident.
Failure to comply with the terms of the Fireworks Permit may also result in a fine and/or formal enforcement proceedings.
