Clearing your sidewalks in Calgary

Within 24 hours of snow being deposited, it is your responsibility to remove all snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to your property. Failure to do so may result in a warning notice asking you to clear the snow from around your home in a certain amount of time. If the sidewalk is not cleared within that time, The City may have the snow and ice removed from the sidewalk at the property owner's expense. For more information on this, visit our bylaws related to snow and ice page.

Help with snow clearing

If you need help clearing your sidewalk, here is a full list of Community Based Snow Removal Programs. You may also be interested in finding out about our Snow Angels program.

Free sand & salt mixture

A free sand/salt mixture, called pickle, is available for pick up at most fire halls and Roads depots. This mixture helps to break down built-up snow and ice on your sidewalk so it can be fully removed down to the bare surface. For a list of pick-up locations click here.

This mixture falls under the City of Calgary's Road Salt Management Plan. It adheres to Environment Canada's Code of Practice for the Environmental Management of Road Salts.
