The City of Winnipeg has adopted the Transportation Association of Canada's Street Lighting Design Guide (2005 Edition) that stipulates the light levels for the City's streets. This is the criteria that defines the number of lights and the wattage used to illuminate City streets. The main purpose of street lighting is to "provide an adequate visual environment for road users to safely use the road system during hours of darkness."
Security lighting is a benefit, not a function of street lighting.
Contact the City's Lighting Systems Engineer at 204-986-6227 or contact 311 for questions regarding:

- Street lighting design standards;
- Requests to increase/decrease street lighting levels. Please note:
- Lighting levels will be modified only if they do not meet the design standards mentioned above.
- Levels will not be modified due to instances of vandalism or crime.
