Name a Snowplow 2023 - Voting is Open for Chatham-Kent’s Popular Snowplow Naming Contest

The Municipality of Chatham-Kent is gearing up for its annual tradition of adding more names to the snowplow fleet, and this year promises to be the most exciting yet. Over 175 creative names have flooded in from our community, each one a testament to the wit and imagination of our residents.

"Every year, I'm pleasantly surprised by the incredible creativity our community unleashes when it comes to naming our snowplows. It's heartwarming to see everyone participate in this fun and unique tradition”, said Mayor Darrin Canniff.

Sponsored for the third consecutive year by Winmar, this naming initiative has become a cherished tradition, bringing our community together in a lighthearted celebration of winter. One plow will be named in each of Chatham-Kent’s six wards.

Residents are invited to cast their votes for their favourite snowplow names. Simply hit the ‘heart’ button next to the name you feels captures your winter spirit. The names with the most votes will earn a coveted spot on our snowplow fleet.

Voting is open now and will close on December 3rd, so don't miss your chance to have your say on the names that will grace our snow warriors this season.

To cast your vote, visit and vote for a name by clicking on the heart icon.
