There is an Annual; Snow Route Parking Ban on public roadways in Winnipeg to permit clearance and removal of ice and snow during the winter months. The Annual Snow Route Parking Ban comes into effect December 1 and continues until March 1, and it applies to all streets bearing SNOW ROUTE signs. When the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban is in effect, you can not stop, stand, idle, or park a vehicle on these streets between the hours of 02:00 – 07:00.

If the Director of PublicWorks announces a Declared Snow Route Parking Ban (A Declared Parking Ban), you cannot stop, stand, idle, or park a vehicle on streets bearing Snow Route signs between the hours of midnight and 07:00.

Where there is a need to clear accumulated snow from residential and other streets, a Residential Parking Ban may be declared. Under the Winter Parking Bay Bylaw, all streets in the City of Winnipeg not marked as a SNOW ROUTE have been assigned to a plowing zone. When a particular zone is scheduled for plowing, any vehicle parked on a street in that zone is in violation of the bylaw and will be ticketed. Notification of a Residential Parking Ban is made through local media and zone information and plowing schedules are available through the City's website and 311.

Vehicles parked in violation of any snow related parking ban may be towed.

Some Parking Authority and other private off street lots may have stalls available during On Street parking bans. Please plan ahead for winter, and inquire.
