The rules & regulations on lighting Class 7.2.1 (Family/Consumer) Fireworks differ in each area. For example, some municipalities in Canada allow fireworks to be set off at any time of the year, whereas in others the local by-laws restrict fireworks usage to certain days or times (or, in a few cases, even prohibit them altogether).
Often, you can download the 'Fireworks Bylaw' for your area from your local City Hall's website. Otherwise, you can obtain information on the regulations in your municipality by calling your local fire department. In most cases, you can get permission to do a display on your property even if it is the off-season in your locale.
