The City provides mechanical sidewalk snow clearing in most parts of Toronto, however in the downtown core the city is unable to provide this service. View a map of sidewalk snow clearing in the City.

If you live in the downtown core where sidewalks cannot be plowed, residents and business owners are responsible for clearing the ice and snow from sidewalks adjacent to their properties within 12 hours of a snowfall. Clearing the ice and snow from the sidewalk in front of your home or business will make it safer for everyone. Failure to do so could result in a fine of $100.00 plus $25.00 surcharge, total $125.00 as per Municipal Code Chapter 719.
