Medical Emergency Access Routes
Residents who require access to emergency medical assistance during the winter can apply to have snow cleared from their private driveway while plows are in their area.
To qualify for this program, residents must submit:
- a letter from their physician stating the reasons for requiring medical emergency access; and
- a signed indemnity agreement (PDF).
The physician’s letter must be provided to the County on an annual basis in order to maintain active status. For liability reasons, private driveways cannot be plowed until these forms have been received.
Once the documentation is ready, contact the County by telephone or email for submission instructions.

County road crews install snow fencing in the fall months to help reduce drifting snow onto county roads.
The County is permitted under the provincial Public Highways Development Act to enter private property to install and maintain snow fencing as required.
Crews will not enter lands where obvious farming underway, for example, active pasture land with grazing livestock or fields with a crop waiting to be harvested. Every effort is made to contact affected landowners in advance of the installation.
