Winter Control

We all want our streets cleared of snow and ice quickly, however, nothing slows down the work of our snow plows more than cars parked on the street. Learn about the Winter Control Bylaw and what you can do to help snow clearing efforts in the winter.

Sidewalk Snow Removal

Adhere to the Sidewalk/Roof Snow Removal Bylaw 301/02 as follows:

  • Do not place snow on the roadway when shovelling or plowing driveways, entrances and sidewalks.
  • Clear any snow and ice from ALL sidewalks within 24 hours after the accumulation of snow or ice.
  • Treat sidewalks that have become slippery because of snow and ice with sand/salt or some like suitable material.
  • Remove snow/ice from any roof which slopes towards a sidewalk where snow/ice may fall from such roof causing danger to pedestrians or vehicular traffic and/or obstruct the sidewalk or roadway before 9:00 a.m.

Weather Emergency Tips

  • Move all vehicles from the roadway during winter storm events.
  • Do not park at the end of your driveway or over the sidewalk.
  • Do not place snow on the roadway when shovelling or plowing driveways, entrances and sidewalks.
  • Pile snow on the right side of your driveway (when facing street) when shovelling (this helps to minimize the pile of snow created by the snow plow at the end of your driveway).
  • Remove snow from around fire hydrants.
  • Keep drainage and catchbasins clear of snow and ice.
  • Be a good neighbour (help those who may not be able to shovel their driveways and walkways).
  • Be patient.

A Plow Priority Route map is also available for reference.
