Find low-cost, pre-screened workers to help seniors with a variety of jobs around the home.

The Seniors Home Supports Program gives seniors referrals to vetted service providers (businesses, community groups and individuals) offering these types of services. Seniors are not charged for referrals but they will pay a fee to the service provider for completing the work.

6 seniors organizations are working together to provide this coordinated system that serves all parts of Edmonton. Seniors contact the organization that serves their part of the city.

Waste collection service for Edmonton residents with temporary or permanent mobility challenges.

Snow Shoveling

Winter can be a challenging time for people to get around, and often more so for those with mobility and balance issues. A stretch of sidewalk can be clear of ice and snow, but the lower temperatures sometimes mean that concrete and asphalt can be hard and sometimes slippery.

If an area that you feel should have been plowed/cleared but wasn’t (or wasn’t done up to a safe standard), contact 311. Operators at the Call Centre will log your complaint and dispatch the call directly to the district responsible for maintaining the transportation infrastructure in that area.

For more information about the Community Standards bylaw, tips for clearing your sidewalks and the process for reporting a concern, visit Maintaining Winter Sidewalks.

Snow Angel Program

Snow Angels was a recognition program that ended in 2016.  It never provided volunteers or free snow removal for seniors.  Anyone needing help with snow, please contact the Seniors Home Supports Program.
