Brampton Ready To ‘Clear The Way’ This Winter


BRAMPTON: Winter weather has arrived and Brampton’s crews are ready! The City team has been working around the clock to ensure that the crew are prepared to clear roads, City-owned sidewalks, transit stops, school crossings, and recreational trails so that residents can get to where they are going safely.

The City has reminded residents that being winter-ready was a team effort and with everyone’s help, this season could be safer for all:

• Clear sidewalks of ice, snow, and slush soon after snowfall;
• Parking on the streets is not allowed and will be enforced during winter weather events. Please move vehicles to ensure plows and emergency vehicles can safely pass by;
• If it has been more than 24 hours since the snowfall has ended and your street still requires attention, let the City know by calling 311, emailing, visiting; or using the 311 app;
• Snow removal financial assistance is available to eligible seniors and homeowners with physical disabilities. Learn more: Last year, Brampton City Council approved increasing service levels on local roads from 7.5 cm accumulation to 5.0 cm, meaning crews are dispatched sooner during a winter weather event. Additionally, residents can see what roads and sidewalks crews have been cleared using the City’s Plow Tracker on, and new this year, on the 311 mobile app.

Annually, work crews clear:
• 3,986 lane km of roads
• 2,462 transit stops
• 979 km of sidewalks/walkways
• 205 km of recreational trails
• 186 school crossing locations
• 86 City facility parking lots
