You may park your vehicle on a street where permitted. Posted signs will indicate where parking restrictions and/or conditions apply. Where there are no posted signs the parking is unrestricted. Unrestricted parking areas are still subject to any and all other by-laws which are not typically posted such as no overnight parking on through streets, intersection and crosswalk clearances, 12 hour parking, etc.
Any vehicle parked in a metered spot must have paid the meter and must not exceed the maximum time limit posted for that spot.
Find a Through Street
Through highways are designated roadways that prohibit parking from 2 am to 7 am every day of the year. Parking is restricted to allow street maintenance such as street cleaning, catch basin cleaning and minor road repairs. There is not a permit available to exempt you from this restriction. There are signs posted at all major entrances to the City advising of this regulation. Each individual street is not signed.
How to Propose a Change to On-street Parking Regulations
The steps involved in requesting an on-street regulation change in your neighbourhood:
- Identify the street/block where you would like to see the change.
- Discuss with parking problem with staff. Parking staff will review the parking regulations and, if warranted, recommend changes in the form of a by-law update to Council.
- Once Council approves the on-street parking regulation changes, the by-law is updated and on-street parking signs are changed.
