A SnowPORTant Mission

On February 1, 2019 our Communications Officer joined Chris Alek, a City snow plow operator for the past 17 years. Watch snow plow operations in the country here:


Winter Control Activities

Winter Control Activities - February 14, 2019


SnowPORTant Update: Since 4 a.m we have been operating in full force out on our City roads. There are five plow trucks, three loaders, two backhoes clearing roadways, parking lots, parking stalls, and laneways.


Starting at 5 a.m. crews are clearing City facilities and another crew will be dispatched to the downtown core at 8 a.m. clearing all intersections.


Residents are reminded that during winter weather conditions, pushing or blowing snow and ice onto or across public roadways creates an unsafe situation for drivers. Residents can assist in the efficiency of the operation by not parking vehicles on roadways during winter control activities

Section 181, Highway Traffic Act - "No person shall deposit snow or ice on a roadway without permission in writing to do so from the Ministry or the road authority responsible for the maintenance of the road"

If you notice poor or dangerous street conditions, please forward this to our staff at the City Works Yard at (905) 835-5079 and your concerns will be dealt with as soon as possible.

Your Cooperation is greatly appreciated.
