Les festivités lors de la fête du Canada présentent une excellente occasion de mettre en évidence l'utilisation et la manipulation des pièces pyrotechniques à l’usage des consommateurs.

L'un des messages clés est que les pièces pyrotechniques à l’usage des consommateurs ne sont pas des jouets. Pour assurer un déploiement de pièces pyrotechnique sécuritaire et plaisant, Ressources naturelles Canada a créé une fiche d'information et un vidéo sur la sécurité qui est disponible pour la distribution sur notre site web aux liens suivants:
