Snow Removal

The Town of Smithers works hard to achieve a balance between an appropriate snow clearing response time and maintaining a reasonable cost for snow clearing. The Town thanks you for your patience and co-operation.

Snow & Ice Control Policy (OPS-009)

After a snowfall, crews are often hampered by cars parked on streets, which blocks access for snow clearing equipment. This creates time delays and can be hazardous. Residents are required to keep the roadways clear of parked vehicles in order to allow the snow clearing crews to do their work safely and efficiently.

Should you have any concerns or questions about the Town's snow clearing policy or procedures, please call the Operations Department between the hours of 8:30am and 3:30pm, Monday through Friday at 250-847-1649 or submit an email to
