Special Weather Statement for Ottawa

Environment Canada has issued a Significant Weather Statement (SWS) approaching Ottawa. We are likely to see 20 to 30 cm of snow along with a wind gust of up to 30 to 60 Km/h. The SWS will be in effect until further notice.

A Winter Weather Parking Ban will be in effect tomorrow Friday, February 18, 2022 from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM. When vehicles are removed from our streets, the Roads and Parking Services Team can clear snow efficiently to create a wide-open roadway.

During this time, all vehicles must be removed from the roadway - unless you have an eligible parking permit or are accessing parking in our exempted commercial main streets.

In addition to the parking ban, residents are urged to:

  • Clear local catch basins.

  • Avoid driving if necessary. If you must drive, please exercise caution (e.g. drive slower).

  • Do not pass City of Ottawa vehicles that are clearing roads. These vehicles are equipped with flashing blue lights.

  • Move all garbage and recycling bins onto your driveway, away from snowbanks.

  • Do not call 3-1-1 or submit a Service Request (SR). The Roads teams are on it.
