Important NoticeIn the summer of 2015, the City of Vancouver amended the Ticket Offenses By-law to include specific Fire By-law offences. Part of the amendments includes offences directly related to the sale, storage and use of fireworks within the City of Vancouver. Under the Fire By-law provisions, Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services and the Vancouver Police Department will be authorized to issue tickets related to the enforcement of these Firework related Fire By-laws. In an effort to reduce the damage caused by the misuse of Fireworks, It is our intention to enforce these bylaws with the use of the Municipal Ticket. Below are the sections of the Fire By-law that the City of Vancouver will be inspecting and the associated fine, should a violation be found.
NOTE: THIS PERMIT IS VALID ONLY FOR THE CITY OF VANCOUVER.
