Residential Parking Program

Residential parking permit holders can only park in their specific residential zone and are required to obey all traffic by-laws, including all annual snow route bans, residential parking bans, and public works street works signs for spring and fall street cleaning.

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.

Only one vehicle license plate will be allowed to be registered per residential parking permit. There continues to be a limit of 3 permits per residence.
