Be a Snow Champion this Winter

Snow Champions are residents who shovel a neighbours sidewalk to be a good neighbour. A Snow Champion can be especially helpful to older adults, people with limited mobility and anyone else needing help, even on a temporary basis.

The City encourages being a Snow Champion to ensure safety for everyone as intended in our Highway and Traffic Bylaw. The City does not provide snow shovelling services to individual residents. We do not have a list of Snow Champions to match individuals.

How to be a Snow Champion

Help a neighbour in need by cleaning their sidewalk and keeping it clear of snow and ice. Watch for elderly people or individuals with mobility issues in your neighbourhood who could use help removing snow and lend them a hand.
