Town of Canmore

Welcome to a New Main Street

We have created a pedestrian and cycling-only Main Street (between 6 Ave - 8 Ave) to be safe and inviting for residents, employees, store owners, and visitors while allowing businesses to recover successfully. 

Main Street Re-opens to Vehicles Thursday, September 24
Main Street will re-open to vehicular traffic on Thursday, September 24. When it does re-open many of the traffic pattern changes made over the summer will remain in place. Main Street is envisioned as a local business area, not a main thoroughfare through town. The map below provides more detail on traffic flow in the town centre.
