Winter Safety

The forecast will eventually call for snow, so we might as well be prepared!

It’s up to all of us to keep our sidewalks clear and safe!

When it snows, residents and businesses in Duncan are responsible for:

  • Removing snow and ice from sidewalks that border their property by 10:00 a.m. each morning, and
  • Keeping snow and ice within the confines of their property (not on the street).

Bylaw Enforcement will be pro-actively patrolling critical pedestrian corridors to ensure the safety and mobility of all citizens.

Be a good neighbour!  Please offer to help clear your neighbour’s sidewalks if they are away or have difficulty shoveling snow.
