In person

You can pay your infraction notice with cash, cheque, money order, debit or credit cards. Pay your notice at the following locations:

  1. Hamilton Municipal Parking System
    80 Main Street West, Hamilton
    Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
  2. Municipal Service Centres
    Find a location near you. Hours vary by location.

You can leave your cheque or money order payment in the drop boxes at these locations. Do not leave cash in the drop boxes.

By mail

By mailing a cheque to the address noted on the infraction notice. Make your cheque payable to the City of Hamilton. Do not post-date your cheque.

Dispute the Infraction Notice

You can request a parking ticket review if you believe an error has been made on:

  • a Notice or Certificate of Parking Infraction
  • a Notice of Impending Conviction
  • a conviction under the Provincial Offences Act

You must appear in person to speak with an Adjudicator at 80 Main Street West, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. No appointment is necessary.  

Plate denial

Outstanding parking tickets will be sent to the Ministry of Transportation (MTO). You will be unable to renew or receive a new license plate validation sticker until all outstanding fines have been paid.

Additional notifications are sent regarding your outstanding parking fines before you are refused renewal of your licence plate. It is your legal responsibility to inform the MTO of any address changes so that you receive all notifications.
