The snow from your driveway must be kept on your property and not ploughed onto the street. Accumulating the snow along the sides, rather than at the end of your driveway, will help to eliminate high banks and improve the visibility required to exit safely.

Please inform your snow removal contractor that it is prohibited to dump or throw snow upon any streets, sidewalks, fire hydrants, public places or private properties, according to the requirements of the nuisance by-law 418. Those who contravene these provisions are liable to fines of $100 minimum. The snow from your driveway must be kept on your property and not ploughed onto the street. Accumulating the snow along the sides, rather than at the end of your driveway, will help to eliminate high banks and improve the visibility required to exit safely.

To keep our roads safe, while minimizing the impact on the environment, the policy is to:

  • Maintain bare pavement on major arteries.
  • Use melting agents (salt) on roads with significant inclines to keep surfaces bare.
  • Leave a snow base on streets with light traffic, using abrasives when required.

Snowed-In Driveway
City snow ploughing operations entail moving snow from the street onto the sidewalk or curb in order to allow traffic to flow safely. This operation leaves accumulated snow in driveway entrances. Each resident is responsible for removing this snow from his own driveway. If you have a contractor, ask him to contact the Public Works Department so he can coordinate his activity with City operations.

If you notice that a street light is defective, please write down the number registered on the light pole or the nearest address where the street light is located, and contact Public Works at 514 428-4500.

After notifying Public Works, the repair will be done in the following ten (10) days.

By-law BEAC-033 allows the use of property markers between May 1 and October 31. They must be placed on the grass, spaced 3 m apart and should be concrete white in colour, no higher than 250 mm, no longer or wider than 200 mm at the base and not attached to the ground.

If you install snow markers to protect your roadside property, they must be at least 1.5 m high and be placed at least 1 m from the edge of the pavement.

Public Works will remove any posts not conforming to this standard.
