Nominations for the 2019-2020 winter season open November 1, 2019


Snow Angels

Snow Angels are individuals who shovel a neighbour’s sidewalk just to be a good neighbour. A Snow Angel can be especially helpful to older adults, people with limited mobility and anyone else needing help, even on a temporary basis.​

The City encourages the practice of being a Snow Angel to ensure pedestrian safety, as intended by the snow bylaw. And each year we recognize those who perform angel duties through our nomination process.

The City does not provide snow shoveling services to individual residents

While we do NOT have a list of Snow Angels to match with individuals,  The City can be a first point of contact to help you organize a Snow Angels program in your neighbourhood. We often know local volunteers, and may be able to connect you with them. If you’d like help exploring options, leave your contact information for us online or by calling 311.

How to be a Snow Angel

Individual volunteers

To be a Snow Angel, all you have to do is adopt a neighbour’s sidewalk and keep it clear when it snows. Watch for elderly people or individuals with mobility issues in your neighbourhood who could use help removing snow and lend them a hand.

Schools

Calgary schools are invited to coordinate a Snow Angels program with their students. It’s a great way for youth to serve their community, earn volunteer hours, and get fresh air and exercise throughout the winter.

Schools that register a Snow Angels program and provide us with the total number of angels when contacted, will receive a letter of recognition from The City.
