Snow Go programs ready to clear the way this winter

Ottawa – Seniors and persons with disabilities can now register for the City of Ottawa’s snow removal assistance programs.

The Snow Go Program helps seniors and persons with disabilities find reliable contractors and/or individuals to clear snow from their private driveways and/or walkways. Once matched up with snow removal help, residents are responsible for making payments directly to the individual or contractor.

Eligible seniors and persons with disabilities can also apply to the Snow Go Assist Program, which provides financial assistance and pays for a portion of their snow removal costs. Approved participants may be reimbursed up to 50 per cent of the cost of snow clearing per event, up to a seasonal maximum of $250.

This is the sixth year the City of Ottawa is partnering with the Seniors Citizens Council and local home support agencies to deliver these two winter programs.

For more information about the Snow Go Program matching service and the Snow Go Assist Program, including eligibility criteria and application process, visit ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1 to request the name of the home support agency that services your neighbourhood (TTY: 613-580-2401).

As a sitting Member of Council, I must adhere to the City’s ERRP, meaning that this website will not be updated during the blackout period. My office remains open to deal with day-to-day constituency matters.
