We Are Accountable to the Citizens of Winnipeg - The Winnipeg Parking Authority submits an annual report and budget update through the Alternate Service Delivery Committee to City Council in December. We appear before committee once a year or on request.
Citizens of Winnipeg Are Our Stakeholders - The Winnipeg Parking Authority runs in accordance with objectives determined by City Council, and with the advice of major stakeholders, such as the BIZ organizations, CentreVenture and Destination Winnipeg.
The WPA pays municipal taxes, development fees, as well as levies on our activities and on city properties. We also pay a dividend to the City for use of On and Off Street parking assets ($3 million in 2009).
Residential Parking Programs help communities manage non-resident vehicles in their neighbourhood by restricting the amount of time non-residents can park. Through the permit system, residents can be exempted from timed restrictions.
The Winnipeg Parking Authority is happy to provide parking support for film shoots, special public events, special private events, and other alternative uses of parking space.
As parking can be considered just one aspect of traffic demand management, the Winnipeg Parking Authority is working to improve the services we provide to cyclists within Winnipeg.
The City of Winnipeg is dedicated to accommodating the needs of community members with disabilities.
As a business, the WPA self generates its own revenues and pays all of its own expenses as well as contributing several millions of dollars toward improvement of City facilities, and a cash contribution in lieu of taxes.
