EligibilityAges: 60 year(s) and up 
 
In order to qualify for this program, all individual(s) residing in the household must be 60 years or older (proof of age is required) or younger than 12 years of age * if any members of the household are between the ages of 12 years and 60 years, a current and valid doctor’s certificate confirming they are physically unable to clear snow must be provided 
 
PLEASE NOTE: Residential homes with rear lanes do not qualify for this service because different procedures are in place for snow removal * snow is pushed straight ahead out of the rear lane and hauled away leaving only a minimal amount of residual snow, which makes this service unnecessary for these areas
