Snow and ice on sidewalks

With the arrival of winter, the District of Sooke would like to remind residents and business owners of their responsibility to clear snow and ice off sidewalks that border their property.

Bylaw No. 67, Traffic and Highways Regulation Bylaw, 2002 states the following:

Owners or occupiers of real property shall remove snow, ice or rubbish from the sidewalk and footpaths bordering the property owned or occupied by them within 24 hours of the accumulation of such snow, ice or rubbish on such sidewalk.
