Winter Operations

The Halifax Regional Municipality has a robust Winter Operations program consisting of in-house and contracted operators and equipment. With each weather event, crews are responsible for approximately 3,800 lane kilometres of streets, about 1,000 kilometres of sidewalks and 2,295 bus stops across the Halifax region.

What's New This Season

We've made some changes to Winter Operations that aim to improve service for residents and ensure contractors are better able to deal with both typical and extraordinary winter conditions.
