Snow Clearing

Clearing snow is a big job and everyone has a role to play. We need to work together as a community to keep streets and sidewalks clear and safe, and keep people, goods, and services moving.

Victoria may be a City of gardens but we can still receive our share of snow. Businesses and residents are required to clear the sidewalk fronting their property by 10am after a snowfall. Learn more about the City’s snow clearing priorities and the responsibilities of residents and businesses when it snows.
