Snow Angel Program

Have you ever seen a "Snow Angels" sign in a neighbour's yard and wondered what it meant?

What is the Snow Angels Program? 

Strathmore is an active community where we celebrate and embrace living in a cold climate. Keeping our sidewalks free of snow and ice is critical in keeping town residents moving safely and enjoying winter.  

But, shoveling can be difficult, and even dangerous, for many citizens -- especially those with limited mobility or certain health conditions.
The Snow Angels Program aims to encourage neighbours to help one another and thereby build a caring, engaged community. Residents in need of snow removal have "Snow Angel" signs placed in their yards.

Who is eligible to have a Snow Angels sign?

Residents who need assistance removing snow are eligible. The Snow Angels Program relies on the good will of neighbourhood volunteers. Placement of a Snow Angel sign on a yard is not a guarantee that snow will be removed.

Who are Snow Angels? 

Snow Angels are individuals: youth, seniors, families, community groups, and corporate volunteers who voluntarily shovel snow for residents needing snow removal assistance.

When does the program run? 

Snow Angels signs are placed in residents windows from November until mid-April.

Where can I get a sign?

Please note that cleaning the sidewalk is still the responsibility of the property owner. Even if you apart of the Snow Angel Program, your walkways must be cleared 48hrs after snowfall. View Bylaw 22-24 for more information.
