Motorists urged to park elsewhere when a residential street is scheduled for snow clearing; residents encouraged to Know Your Zone
Winnipeg, MB – Plowing of residential streets will begin Thursday evening to improve the overall condition of residential streets. As a result, a Residential Parking Ban has been declared and will be in effect starting Thursday, December 30, 2021 at 7 p.m.
Residents are urged to confirm their snow zone letter to determine when their residential street is scheduled for clearing.
You can find your snow zone with the Address Lookup Tool, by using the Know Your Zone app, or by contacting 311. Residents are encouraged to know their snow zone letter well in advance of the start of the residential plow and to make alternate parking arrangements if they park on the street.
Starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 30, 2021, residents in snow zones D, I, O, S, U, V will need to move their vehicles as plowing will be underway until 7 a.m. on Friday. Please refer to the entire schedule below for details about when snow zones will be cleared this week.

Residents can view the progress of our snow clearing operations by consulting our Snow Clearing Status Map.
If a residential street was not cleared as scheduled, it will be cleared after plowing has been completed city-wide. Residents are advised to contact 311 following the completion of the residential plowing operation to report a missed street. Residents can also report the location using the quick and convenient online form, which provides us with all the information needed to process a service request.
When a residential street is scheduled for snow clearing, residents are urged to find an alternate place to park such as an off-street driveway or parking lot, or a nearby street that has already been cleared. This helps the plowing operation run smoothly and will prevent you from possibly being ticketed and towed.
Updates to parking ban enforcement
Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may receive a $200 ticket ($150 if paid early), and may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed, or has already been cleared. If you believe your vehicle may have been towed due to the Residential Parking Ban, please contact 311 for assistance in locating it.
Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) technology will be used to identify vehicles parked in violation of Residential Parking Bans to ensure greater city-wide parking enforcement coverage, improve motorist compliance with winter parking bans, and improve our overall snow clearing service. Those parked in violation will receive tickets in the mail, rather than on the windshield of their vehicle; however, enforcement officers will continue to hand-deliver penalty notices to vehicles when necessary.
Effective January 1, 2022, ALPR technology will also be used to identify vehicles parked in violation of the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban.
