This initiative was created due to the observation of continuous risky behaviours in our school zones by our Regional Bylaw Officer. A CAA School Zone Safety Assessment was conducted at each of Shaunavon’s schools to identify the key safety problems that occur. Access each CAA Assessment by clicking the links below:

Derelict Vehicle Removal Program

Derelict Vehicle Removal Program

Not sure how to deal with that derelict (aka junk) vehicle in your yard? We have a solution!!

Back in May this year, the Town of Shaunavon partnered with A&B Auto Centre where property owners could register the vehicle with the Town Office, and A&B’s tow truck would remove the vehicle free of charge to the owner. Since this program received such a positive uptake, it is continuing to be offered to Shaunavon residents!

If you own a derelict vehicle that you would like removed from your property, you may phone the Town Office at (306) 297-2605 during office hours to sign up for the program.

Shaunavon Positive Ticketing Program

Shaunavon Positive Ticketing Program

Shaunavon RCMP Officers and the Town of Shaunavon Regional Bylaw Officer handed out over 70 Positive Tickets to youth from June until the end of September this year for Project Positivity! Youth who demonstrated road safety behaviours throughout the community may be rewarded with a “positive ticket” which can be redeemed the a local business on the back of the ticket for a prize! Some road safety behaviors include utilizing the light up pedestrian crosswalks, wearing a bike helmet when riding a bicycle, or other safe behaviors as officers see fit!

This was a fantastic program to partner with our local RCMP to execute, and with local businesses! Further, Positive Ticketing aids in developing healthy relationships between youth and enforcement officers, as well as the community! Stay tuned for the program in 2024.
