The hard work that snowfighters put in ensuring that we have safe roads and the required level of mobility deserves to be recognized. Additionally, agencies need to know that what they are doing is reflective of excellent practices in the field of winter maintenance. 

We have a series of awards for our members that recognize their contribution to excellent practices in winter maintenance and these are described in these pages. We also provide our agencies with a tool to measure their progress toward safe and sustainable practices in their winter maintenance. The tool is a self-assessment tool that is straightforward to complete. Any member agency can conduct the self-assessment at any time.

Once a year, we will provide awards to all our member agencies who achieve certain levels of performance as identified by the self-assessment tool. Additionally, many of our training resources are aimed at helping agencies achieve higher performance levels in the various areas of safe and sustainable winter maintenance.
