City Council has approved amendments to the Fireworks By-law (2011-100) to ensure emergency response resources are dedicated to COVID-19 response and to discourage the potential for large, social gatherings.

Under the amended by-law, residents are no longer able to set off fireworks on a permitted day if a municipal fire ban or provincial restricted fire zone is in effect. The amendment also removes Victoria Day and Canada Day as permitted days for 2020.

The City of Greater Sudbury declared a fire ban in April, in alignment with the restricted fire zone put in place by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF).
