Winter Parking Ban

November 1, 2021 - April 30, 2022

11:30pm to 7:30am

 

Please be reminded that the winter parking ban, as in previous years, will be in effect.  Beginning November 1, 2021 until April 30, 2022 any vehicle parked on the street between the hours of 11:30pm and 7:30am will be subject to a $75.00 fine and the vehicle may be towed at the owner's expense.

IMPORTANT:  Please do not expect a knock at your door to advise of winter road maintenance, the signs posted will be considered sufficient notice.  Look for signs posted on your street to ensure parking has not been restricted in your area.  Fines and towing charges are costly and avoidable.

 

If you are in an area that is exempt from this by-law there will be clearly marked green signs indicating that Parking is Permitted, such as the one pictured below.  Please note though that these areas are extremely limited in the city.

As well, please also be advised that many one-way streets allow for parking on only one side of the street during daytime hours in winter months.
