1. Do you shoot fireworks outside of Alberta?

While we mainly shoot fireworks throughout Alberta,we do also shoot some shows across Western Canada.

2. Is a permit required to purchase and shoot fireworks in Alberta?

Yes, all localities require at least a permit from or notification to the local fire department of your intent to shoot fireworks. Some locations such as the City of Edmonton require a permit to be acquired from the Fire Prevention Branch prior to purchasing and possessing consumer fireworks. It is important to note: It is the purchasers and end users responsibility to ensure that all local, provincial, and federal regulations are met. Professional high hazard fireworks displays also require permits as well as insurance and are governed under different regulations that require a Government of Canada certified display supervisor to handle and shoot these fireworks.
