Snow removal in Toronto is essential to avoid accidents, so if you don’t, you could be fined.
The City of Toronto government is seeking to maintain the well-being of all residents this winter. So it’s time to remember that removing ice and snow from the sidewalk in front of our property or business helps keep neighbors and communities safer for everyone.
If the depth of the accumulated snow is 2 cm or less, it is up to residents and businesses to remove snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall. This includes driveways, parking spaces, steps, ramps and landings.
The fine for failure to remove snow from public and private property is C$500 plus an additional $115, for a total of C$615. Be a good citizen and avoid these fees by cleaning the sidewalks.
If the snow gets thicker, it’s up to the city teams to clean it up with the right equipment.
Authorities require that if they identify a neighbor violating these rules, they are reported to 311, where the safety of pedestrians and drivers must be taken care of.
