Snow event cancelled as of 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 5.

A snow event was declared on Friday, March 3 based on credible weather forecast information. This snow event has now been extended until 11:59 p.m. on March 5. About 90 per cent of city roads have been plowed. Extending the snow event will allow crews to continue clearing priority 3 roads.  

During a snow event, the City's tag-and-tow process takes effect. Residents are prohibited from parking their cars on City streets at any time when a snow event has been declared by the City. The ticket for parking on the street during a snow event is $80. Vehicles can also be towed if a snow operator is unable to get down a City street and contacts enforcement staff on patrol.     

Sign up to be notified when a snow event has been declared, cancelled or extended, and get a link to the Getting Around online map, or follow the City of Kitchener’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
