Snow and ice clearing update

We provide snow and ice updates and important reminders for Calgarians as we prepare for snow, manage our way through a snowfall and then during the seven-day clean-up period.

Areas not snow cleared by The City

The City does not have Council approval or budget to:

  • Plow residential streets to bare pavement. Residential routes are monitored in the 7 Day Snow Plan.
  • Snow removal in residential areas.
  • Clear back lanes or alleyways
  • Clear sidewalks bordering private homes or businesses; this is the responsibility of the home/business owner
  • Clear snow on engineered walkways, the pedestrian/cycling thoroughfares located between private properties, usually with a barrier at either end to prevent motorized access
