Our Public Works Department makes every effort to ensure that our streets and sidewalks are clear of snow and properly sanded during the winter months.
Please be patient as we complete this process.
Snow plowing and/or removal, as well as sanding, will be started after a heavy snowfall (15 cm) or once accumulations have reached 15 cm.
As shown on the snow management and sanding maps below, the priority areas are as follows:
Priority One: High traffic areas throughout the Town
Priority Two: Streets leading to important facilities (example: solid waste disposal facility)
Priority Three: Secondary streets with average traffic
Priority Four: Other Streets are cleared once all other major areas are completed.
Depending on the level of snowfall, conditions and work load, this process may take a day or two. Should another 15cm of snow accumulate during the snow removal process, priorities will shift back to one and two.Remember to use caution when passing snow removal equipment as visibility is limited and equipment may stop and/or back up suddenly. Please take care when driving and watch for icy patches and drifting snow.
Priority One: Major intersections, and high traffic areas throughout the Town
Priority Two: Main thoroughfares and other intersections
Priority Three: Other Streets are cleared once all other major areas are completed.

|The Town of Inuvik endeavours to provide a reasonable standard of care in our sidewalk clearing operations. Our objective is to provide a safe walking environment for pedestrians during the time of year when winter conditions can be expected. Sidewalk Clearing By-law (#2397/PS/06) regulates the removal of snow, ice, dirt and other obstructions from the sidewalks, highways, Utilidor right-of-ways and public places within the Town. Sidewalks are plowed when accumulation exceeds 8-10cm. Sand will be applied to sidewalks as soon as practicable after becoming aware that sidewalks are icy.|
As always, we're working hard to make Inuvik a better place for everyone to live and enjoy.
