Snow Zone Alerts

Snow Zone alerts are issued during residential plowing to keep residents informed on plowing in their Snow Zone. Separate alerts will be issued for Green and Grey Routes in each Snow Zone. Here’s what you need to know about residential snow plowing:

  • Snow plowing is scheduled and announced by Snow Zone and Route. To find your Snow Zone and Route, go to Know Your Snow Zone.
  • Plowing on Green Routes occurs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday. “No parking” signs are placed on the street at least 12 hours in advance of plowing. Vehicles left on Green Routes will be ticketed and towed.
  • Plowing on Grey Routes occurs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. “No parking” signs are NOT used on individual streets; instead large signs are placed at the entrances to neighbourhoods. Vehicles left on Grey Routes will be ticketed and plowed in.  
  • Green Routes are plowed to bare pavement and snow is removed. Grey Routes are plowed to a 5 cm snowpack with windrows left on both sides of the street. City crews will remove windrows from front facing driveways and place the snow on the windrow on the remainder of the street.
  • Most Snow Zones typically take two to three days to plow, so your street may not be plowed on the first day your Snow Zone is scheduled to start. Your vehicle needs to be off the street every day plowing is scheduled until the street is plowed.
  • The schedule is based on current conditions and is subject to change. We will sent a new alert if the schedule changes.
