Pubic Notice: 

The Town of Antigonish is asking residents to not park on the street in the downtown core. This is to ensure parked vehicles are not blocking driving lanes and to allow for further snow clearing.  Parking lots have been cleared and are available for short term parking.  We thank residents for their patience and cooperation as we continue to clean up from the storm.

Storm Update - Monday, February 5 at 3 p.m. 

Residential Waste Collection for Tuesday has been rescheduled for Friday, February 9.

Storm Update - Monday, February 5 at 9:20 a.m. 

Snow clearing efforts continue today. Our Public Works crews have prioritized keeping main streets and feeder streets clear all weekend and will now focus on side streets. Crews are clearing sidewalks in the downtown and will then move out to residential neighbourhoods.

As people begin moving around and businesses open, we remind residents to not park on the street so that plows can push snow back. Parking lots in the downtown have been cleared for short term parking.

If you are aware of a fire hydrant in your neighbourhood and can help first responders by clearing snow around it, that would be greatly appreciated.

We received an estimated 80 to 85 cm of snow. Our Public Works crews have done an amazing job working around the clock in blizzard conditions. We ask for patience as clean-up will continue over the next couple of days and we encourage folks to help their neighbours wherever possible

Storm Update - Sunday, February 4 at 9 a.m. 

As our Public Works crew continue with snow clearing efforts during this storm, we are advising residents of the following: 

  • All on-street parking is restricted at this time to ensure plows can safety and effectively push snow back as far as possible
  • The Overnight Winter Parking Ban is in effect and being enforced
  • Parking lots in and around the downtown core are available for short term parking if you need to move a car to clear your driveway or run into a store for necessary items
  • If you are clearing your driveway and you park on the street, please return your vehicle to your driveway as soon as possible
  • Follow the advice of the RCMP and stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary

Our crews have been working hard over the past two days to maintain two passable lanes on all major streets and feeder streets. Plows will then move into residential neighbourhoods and focus on sidewalks. 

We thank residents for your cooperation and hope everyone is staying safe during this storm.
