City Snow Removal Policy

For accurate information on the City Snow Removal Policy you can read it here and the snow removal priority map here

The reference to 18cm is only the part of the policy that authorizes staff to hire extra snow removal equipment. Typically crews will start to clear streets when we have approximately 5cm of snow, although we may wait to clear the downtown until we get additional accumulation. Residential areas should expect on average to only be plowed 3 times per season, but this can vary greatly depending on the amount of snow received in any given season.
