City Shuts Down


All City facilities are closed today and City services will be cancelled.

With the significant winter event, the City is advising residents to stay off of the roads as conditions are not safe for travel.

All City facilities will not be in operation today. This includes the Civic Centre, City Libraries, City arenas and all recreational facilities including Seniors Centre, Ermatinger·Cler gue National Historic Site and City pools. All programming at City arenas and the Northern community Centre will be cancelled.

City transit is cancelled and will not be running

With the significant freezing rain and snow conditions, the City’s Public Works team would like to provide the following updates and reminders.

Garbage collection and recycling scheduled for Monday will be cancelled. Next Monday’s
collection shall allow for a four a (4) bag limit for those routes affected.

Staff will be working to keep the roadways safe and clear. Snow will be cleared first from the
main and collector roadways. The clearing of residential areas and designated sidewalks will be delayed until the main roadways and collector roads are cleared and safe. Sidewalks should not be blocked at any time in order to facilitate snow removal. Residents are reminded that the snow plowed to the end of their driveway during a significant snow event is their responsibility and may be more than usual.

Motorists are reminded to drive according to the conditions and allow space for heavy
equipment operators to clear and sand roadways safely and efficiently. The parking by-law
remains in effect with motorists not permitted to park on city streets during the winter months between midnight and 6 a.m. however, during a winter event, motorists are also asked to not park on city streets during the day. This will assist in the efficiency of snow removal.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks residents for their cooperation. For more information,
residents may contact Public Works at 705-759-5201 or email [email protected]
