In response to the numerous questions asked by our retail partners and their customers, BLAST-OFF Fireworks has developed a listing of Frequently Asked Questions.

There are three ways to determine how a particular item will perform when ignited. First, check the product packaging for a description of the item’s performance. Second, visit our website at blastofffireworks.ca to view product pictures, descriptions, and videos. Finally, you can consult an InfoDOC™ brochure for product definitions and effect listings.

All fireworks sold at your location have been tested by the Government of Canada, and are approved for retail sale to the public.

It is safe to transport up to 75 kg of family fireworks in a passenger vehicle. As a precaution, keep purchased fireworks out of direct sunlight (in the trunk, rear cargo boy, or under the seat).

Provided they are stored in a cool, dry location, fireworks have a very long shelf-life (5-7 years). Do not store fireworks in a sealed plastic container, as plastic prevents the circulation of air, and may trap moisture, causing condensation.

All products sold at Canadian retail locations have been approved for sale to consumers in Canada, and do not require additional licenses for purchase or possession. In order to purchase and use Class 7.2.1 (consumer) fireworks in Canada, one must:

    • Be 18 years of age or order.
    • Follow all instructions for safe use and clean-up.
    • Properly plan and coordinate display activities.

It’s always a good idea to check with your insurance representative to discuss the storage and sale of fireworks on your premise. In nearly all cases, consumer fireworks will not affect your insurance policy rates.

Local municipalities have the ability to enact rules and regulations restricting the time of year in which fireworks can be sold, the quantity of fireworks you can carry at your store, or ban the sale of fireworks in your area. For further details regarding the municipal bylaws or restrictions in your area, contact your local civic office.
