Declaring a Snow Route

Snow routes will be declared when snowfall has reached a minimum of 5 cm of snow. They are declared a minimum of 8 hours before parking bans are in effect and can happen any day of the week. We advise residents through an email notification, our Facebook and Twitter pages, or right here on the website.

Sign up for email notifications. We strongly encourage neighbourhood residents and businesses to sign up to find out when a snow route is declared. It’s the most direct way for us to let you know when a snow route has been declared and the 24-hour parking ban will be in effect.

Snow routes will be declared at 3 p.m. Residents and businesses can rest assured that they are free to return the following morning if there has been no notification before 3 p.m. the day before, no matter what the weather brings.

For this year’s pilot program, when a Snow Route is declared at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, that means there is no parking on the route starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday. Remember that a snow route could be declared any day of the week.

When a snow route is declared, it means there is no parking for a 24-hour period. Vehicles that remain on the snow route during the temporary parking ban will be ticketed $120. Vehicles can be parked on your own driveways, garages, or adjacent on streets where legally allowed.

If you have a parking permit through the Saskatchewan Abilities Council's Parking Program for People with Disabilities, please contact us at 306-777-7000 to determine if we can work together to find an alternative.
