The Town crossing guard program includes 72 active guards deployed at 57 locations, providing crossing services for kindergarten to grade 5 students in the Public, Catholic and French school systems. The guards are on duty in the morning, at lunchtime and at the end of the school day.

Staff have been reviewing the program to ensure the program meets demand, identify operational efficiencies and determine any cost savings. On September 14, 2020, staff recommended removing crossing guards during lunchtime at select locations with low student usage. The final Council decision has been deferred until the November 9, 2020, General Government Committee Meeting.

To help inform Council’s decision, we are asking residents to complete a short survey. The survey is live until October 30.
