Seniors and disabled snow clearing in Toronto
If you are a senior or disabled resident of Toronto, the City will manually
clear snow from the sidewalk in front of your home in those areas where the
service is not provided by machine.

The City of Toronto provides sidewalk snow clearing in most of Toronto, however
there are a few areas where equipment is unable to effectively access
sidewalks. Most of these areas are in the downtown core.

For seniors and the disabled living in these areas, contact the City of Toronto
at 416-392-7768.

Please note that the service applies to the sidewalk in front of your home only
and does not include driveways or walkways leading to homes.

Seniors and the disabled can call 211 for information on service providers in
the Toronto area who can assist them with snow removal on private property.
