About the Program

Neighbourhood Network coordinates a volunteer snow removal service for eligible seniors and persons with disabilities. This program matches volunteer snow shovellers with registered clients in our partnered municipalities.

What Are the Goals?

  • To help seniors and persons with disabilities stay active in the community throughout the winter season.
  • To connect volunteers with residents in need.

How Does the Program Work?

A volunteers is matched with a registered client and is expected to deliver clearing services within 24 hours when snowfall accumulation exceeds 10 centimeters (4 inches). Volunteers will clear:

  • Snow from town sidewalks
  • A path to resident’s front door
  • Snow at driveway entrances left by snow plows

To volunteer as a snow shoveller, call 905-726-3737 or email
