Halloween Fireworks Permits

Some people love to liven up their Halloween activities with a dazzling fireworks display, however, this is a friendly reminder that you need a CVRD Fireworks Discharge Permit, and a Fireworks Operators Certificate for any large-scale commercial or industrial grade displays. 


If you want to discharge fireworks on Halloween night in your yard you must have the following: 

  • Fireworks Discharge Permit approved by the CVRD. This can be applied for at Ladysmith City Hall, 410 Esplanade during business hours, Monday to Friday: 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
A fireworks Safety Awareness Information Package will be provided to you with the issuing of the permit.  

Please note that fireworks may be discharged only on October 31 between the hours of 6:00 pm and 12 midnight (and 12 midnight and 1:00 am on January 1). Pick up a form at City Hall or email
For more information, please call City Hall at 250.245.6400 or email
