Annual Snow Route Parking Ban starting December 1, 2015

City of Winnipeg Public Works

Annual Snow Route Parking Ban begins Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Parking will be prohibited on Snow Routes between 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m.
The City's Annual Snow Route Parking Ban will take effect at 2:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 1, 2015. Vehicles may not park on designated snow routes between 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m.
The Annual Snow Route Parking Ban is in effect from December 1 to March 1.
Avoid a ticket and tow
Vehicles parked in violation of the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban will receive a $100 ticket ($50 if paid early), and may be towed to the towing company’s compound.
Citizens are encouraged to check their streets for Snow Route signs, or if unsure, to contact 311 or use the online Address Lookup Tool.
Snow routes are a top priority for snow clearing to ensure that emergency vehicles can navigate quickly and safely around the city. It’s important that vehicles are not parked on snow routes overnight in order to enable rapid and efficient snow clearing of these critical routes.

Manitoba Deaf Association (MDA) New Reschedule General Meeting for January 7th.. Check it out!

News from Canadian Administrator of VRS (CAV) Inc

CAV-ACS November Update!

Suivi par le texte français et vidéo LSQ

November Update (ASL)
Video: ASL


CAV continues to make solid progress in our work to build Canada’s new Video Relay Service.

In September, we told you that we have a two-step procurement process in place to:
  1. acquire the technology platform that will power our VRS system, and
  2. select the video interpreter providers who will provide call centre interpreting services in ASL and LSQ.
This procurement work is advancing well, and we anticipate that we will have additional  news to share with you in the coming weeks.
While building the VRS service is our number 1 priority, CAV is also working hard to become more acquainted with Canada’s vibrant Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities and to get their ideas about VRS. 
  • On October 24, Lisa Anderson-Kellett, one of CAV’s Board Directors, gave an update on our progress to the Greater Vancouver Association of the Deaf. 
  • On November 14, CAV’s Executive Director Sue Decker was pleased to meet with the Ontario Association of the Deaf and the Toronto Association of the Deaf at their annual general meetings. 
At both meetings, people responded enthusiastically about the VRS coming to Canada. As we move into 2016, our goal is to meet more people face-to-face for discussions about the opportunities that VRS will bring to our lives. We are making history together – it is an exciting time!
We will also be making history this month when CAV launches its new website. This will be a place you can go to get news and information about the implementation of VRS. You will also be able to sign up for regular email updates.
We will be in touch again with another update in early December.
Thank you and best wishes.


Sue Decker
Executive Director, CAV-ACS

L’administrateur canadien du SRV continue d’avancer afin de bâtir le nouveau service de relais vidéo au Canada.

En septembre, nous vous avons présenté notre procédé en deux étapes pour la sélection de fournisseurs :
  • La première est d’acquérir la plateforme technologique qui soutiendra notre système du SRV.
  • La deuxième est de sélectionner les fournisseurs d’interprétation vidéo qui offriront des centres d’appels et des services d’interprétation en ASL et en LSQ. 

Le travail de sélection se déroule bien et nous comptons vous fournir plus de détails au cours des prochaines semaines.

Bâtir le SRV est notre priorité numéro un. Soyez assurés que l’ACS travaille fort afin de mieux cibler les attentes des communautés sourdes et malentendantes canadiennes tout en obtenant leur rétroaction sur le SRV. 
  • Le 24 octobre, Lisa Anderson-Kellet, membre du conseil d’administration de l’ACS, a présenté une mise à jour à la Greater Vancouver Association of the Deaf.
  • Le 14 novembre, Sue Decker, directrice exécutive de l’ACS, a eu le plaisir de rencontrer l’Ontario Association of the Deaf et la Toronto Association of the Deaf durant leurs assemblées annuelles respectives.
Au cours de ces rencontres, les gens ont exprimé leur enthousiasme au sujet de l’arrivée du SRV au Canada.

À l’approche de l’année 2016, notre but est de rencontrer encore plus de gens en personne afin de discuter des possibilités que le SRV apportera dans notre quotidien. Nous écrivons une page d’histoire ensemble, c’est excitant!

Le lancement du site Internet de l’ACS sera également un moment historique ce mois-ci. Le site Internet sera l’endroit désigné pour obtenir toute nouvelle ou information au sujet de l’implantation du SRV. Vous pourrez même vous y inscrire afin de recevoir des mises à jour par courriel.

Nous communiquerons avec vous à nouveau en décembre pour vous donner plus d’information. D’ici là, je vous remercie.

Public Advisory from Winnipeg Police Services

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Public Advisory – Vehicle Theft Prevention
The Winnipeg Police Service would like motorists to be mindful when leaving their running vehicles unattended, especially now that cold winter conditions have arrived. Reports of stolen vehicles have been received as a result of those vehicles being left unattended while they were warming up.

Each year a number of vehicles are stolen in Winnipeg as a result of keys being left in the ignition, or spare keys left within the passenger compartment of the vehicle (in the glove box, under the floor mat, etc.)

Vehicle owners are strongly encouraged to protect their keys.  Do NOT leave spare keys within your vehicle.

The Winnipeg Police Service would like to advise motorists to take every precaution to protect their property.
