In Montreal, the storm dumped between 25 and 35 centimetres and the clean-up is expected to last the week.
The entire operation is expected to cost the city close to $20,000,000.
Montreal executive committee vice-president Anie Samson said some 3,000 workers are out clearing the city's 10,000 kilometres of streets.
Samson asked Montrealers to respect the no-parking signs and the snow-removal crews.
"Every time we tow a car it takes time ... So, we ask people to be responsible for their car."
She says the city will work with all the boroughs to make the clean-up as efficient as possible.
