Town of Canmore

To increase mobility and safe physical distancing for residents and visitors accessing local businesses, we are returning Main Street to a pedestrian and cyclist-only space in summer 2021. Cars will no longer be able to travel down Main Street from 6 Avenue to 8 Avenue as of Wednesday, May 5 (weather dependent) until October 15. Pedestrians will continue to have the right-of-way on both our multi-use pathways and in this downtown zone. 

Are you a business on Main Street? Consider applying for the Main Street Pedestrian Zone permit to make use of the public right-of-way for your business to provide services while accommodating appropriate physical distancing measures.   Other economic recovery programs, such as the COVID-19 Safe Space Grant, are also available.
