Edmonton is a winter city with significant snowfall. Keeping our sidewalks free of snow and ice is critical in keeping Edmontonians moving safely. But shoveling can be difficult, and even dangerous, for many citizens -- especially those with limited mobility or certain health conditions. City residents are encouraged to become Snow Angels and make a difference in their communities by shoveling and scraping their own sidewalks, and by lending a hand to neighbours who need help with their walks.
The City of Edmonton is expanding the Snow Angel Program to be a community-based education and recognition program. It will no longer be a nomination-based program.
As part of the expanded program, community leagues will recognize neighbourhood Snow Angels with a yard sign that shows they do their part to support safety and mobility in the community. Snow Angels will also be eligible to win a Boston Pizza party and 1 of 10 pairs of Edmonton Oil Kings tickets. To recognize a Snow Angel, please contact your community league.
This winter, 27 community leagues are participating in the Snow Angels program.
To find out if your community league is involved:
- Find your neighbourhood using the Your Neighbourhood search page (The Snow Angels logo appears on the neighbourhood pages that are participating)
- Contact your local community league (you can find your facility in the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues Directory)
Kids can be Snow Angels too!
Register your classroom to participate in the 2016-17 Snow Angels School Program! Clear snow and ice from the public sidewalks (only!) around your neighbourhood. Then send us a picture of your class hard at work to be eligible to win 1 of 10 classroom pizza parties (up to 30 kids, any grade).
