Where to see Canada Day Fireworks in Metro Vancouver this summer

May 20 2022, 7:46 pm

Canada Day is coming up fast and it’s a big day of celebration and reflection across the country.

One of our favourite moments of the festivities is the fireworks displays, and a number of events in and around Metro Vancouver have huge ones planned for their July 1 extravaganzas.

Though the traditional Canada Day fireworks at Canada Place in downtown Vancouver have been cancelled, we’ve put together a list of cities and celebrations that will be lighting up the night sky.

We’ll add more Canada Day fireworks to our checklist as they get announced, so stay tuned!
