Veterans Parking Information

On October 24, 2012 Winnipeg City Council approved a report recommending preferential parking for holders of Veteran Licence plates.

Vehicles bearing Veteran Licence plates will be entitled to complimentary parking at City of Winnipeg parking meters on the following days:

  • April 9th - the Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge
  • June 6th - the Anniversary of D-Day

Additionally, each year, starting November 1st, registered owners of vehicles with Veteran Licence Plates will be entitled to receive a book of scratch meter passes which will provide up to 20 hours of complimentary parking at City of Winnipeg on-street parking meters.

In order to receive the book of scratch meter passes the following documentation will be required:

  • Licence; and
  • Registration of Veteran Plate

There is a limit of one book per veteran. Scratch meter passes may be picked up at The Parking Store located at 495 Portage Avenue during normal business hours.

While on-street parking is already complimentary on Remembrance Day, the Winnipeg Parking Authority will now also be offering complimentary parking in the Millennium Library parking facility to vehicles bearing Veteran Licence Plates. Connected to the Convention Centre through the Skywalk from City Place, the facility offers an additional option for veterans attending the ceremony at the Convention Centre.
