Parking for Persons with Disabilities

The City of Winnipeg is dedicated to accommodating the needs of community members with disabilities.

For Drivers without Disability Permits

The provision of disabled parking facilities in the City of Winnipeg is governed by the Winnipeg Parking By-Law. This By-Law allows for the designation of Disability Permit parking stalls and outlines the requirements for establishment of such stalls. It is an offence to park in a designated Disabled parking stall without displaying a valid Provincial Permit.

While many of these parking stalls are located on private property, many are located in public spaces and on roadways. There is a large fine for misuse of a disability space. Please watch for signage.


The Province of Manitoba maintains a process for issuing Parking Permits for people with disabilities to eligible members of the public within provincial borders. To learn more about the permit program please contact:

On-Street Parking for Disabled Permit Holders

Permit holders with a disability may use spaces designated with the international access symbol, OR any other meter stall as available. Parking is offered on a "pay as you go" basis provided they display their permit.

The Winnipeg Parking By-Law 86/2016 allows motorists displaying disability permits to park for 4 hours at pay-stations when the maximum time is purchased and for 4 hours at non-paystation spaces restricted to 1 or 2 hours.

An additional 30 minutes may be purchased starting after the 4 hours if the maximum time was previously purchased.

Note: ** When less than the maximum time is purchased the actual time purchased will apply **

Payment for the full period of parking is required if:

  • you park in a Surface Lot
  • you park at a 4 hour paystation
  • you park near Health Science Center or St. Boniface Hospital
  • you park at a 2 hour paystation and use payment methods other than coins or a credit card

Accessible Downtown Parking Locations

The WPA recognizes Disability Permits from other provinces, states and countries. Disability permits from Manitoba are recognized in other provinces, states, and countries as well. The FIA European Bureau is working on a worldwide survey to develop an international guide for disabled drivers.

However, if you plan to use a Disability Permit in another jurisdiction, IT IS IMPORTANT that you still check with that jurisdiction ahead of time to find out if there are any differences in regulations.
