Snow and Ice Removal

Please remember that sidewalks can become very slippery during the winter. Please help prevent accidents by keeping the sidewalks around your home/business clear of ice and snow.

While the City is responsible for clearing major thoroughfares, including bus routes, bridges, and bike lanes, residents and businesses are responsible for clearing snow and ice from the full width of sidewalks that surround their residence or business by 10:00am on the morning following a snowfall. Failure to do so could result in a fine.

Snow and ice on the sidewalk can be a barrier for many people, particularly seniors and people with disabilities. A single portion of a sidewalk that is not cleared can negate the clearing efforts of the rest of the residents on the whole block.

Help those unable to shovel

The City encourages you to lend a hand to those who are unable to shovel their own sidewalks.

Adopt the sidewalk of a senior neighbour or person with a mobility issue, and keep it clear of snow and ice all winter long.

To report problems on City property, call 3-1-1, or 604-873-7000.

Happy holidays from the Seniors Advisory Committee!
