This regulatory shift aims to enhance safety, accountability, and quality of service in snow removal operations within the city. Here are some key aspects of the new regulations:

1. Permit Requirement: Snow removal contractors are now obliged to apply for and obtain a permit from the City before commencing any snow removal activities. This permit serves as an authorization to operate within the city limits during the snow removal season.

2. Compliance Requirements: To secure a permit, contractors must satisfy several requirements set by the City. These include demonstrating proof of liability insurance to cover potential damages and accidents during snow removal operations. Additionally, all vehicles used for snow removal must be registered for this specific purpose.

3. Seasonal Coverage: The new permits cover the period from October 15th to April 30th of the following year. Contractors must ensure that their permits are renewed annually. The renewal deadline is set for no later than October 1st of each year. Failure to renew in a timely manner may result in a suspension of snow removal services.

4. Verification of Authorization: The City strongly encourages individuals and businesses seeking snow removal services to verify that their chosen contractor possesses a valid permit for the current year. This step is crucial to ensuring that the contractor is authorized to operate within the city and is compliant with all safety and quality standards.

These new regulations come as part of Boisbriand’s ongoing efforts to maintain the safety and accessibility of its roadways, parking lots, and private properties during the winter months. By requiring permits and imposing compliance standards, the City aims to provide residents and businesses with reliable and responsible snow removal services.

For snow removal contractors operating within Boisbriand, it is imperative to familiarize themselves with these new regulations and promptly apply for the required permits to avoid any disruptions in their operations. Failure to comply with these regulations may result in penalties and legal actions.

As of September 10th 2023, no snow removal companies appeared in the City’s list of companies that have acquired their proper permits.
