Overnight Parking Restrictions Lift Victoria Day Weekend.
Effective Saturday, May 18, 2019 the restriction on overnight parking will be lifted for the summer months (Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day, inclusive) for automobiles and motorcycles on most City streets. The relaxation of the overnight parking restriction does not apply to commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles or trailers.
Drivers wanting to park on-street, prior to Victoria Day Weekend, will need to register their vehicles for overnight parking using the overnight parking pass system. Overnight passes are not valid where parking is prohibited year round.
Overnight Parking Pass
Passes are available between Labour Day and Victoria Day weekend, weather permitting for personal vehicle(s).
A maximum of 15 free passes may be issued per vehicle license plate, valid on most city streets. Vehicles parked on City streets without a valid overnight parking pass may be liable to a parking fine.
When applying for your pass before midnight please ensure you select the next calendar day as your pass will start at midnight
Example 1: if you apply for your pass on Tuesday, September 4 at 11:00pm please select your pass for September 5 to allow you to park from 3:00am to 5:00am.
Example 2: if you apply between midnight and 5:00am please select the current day.
Overnight parking is prohibited on certain streets, see schedule 2, Schedule 2. Overnight passes are not valid where parking is prohibited year round. Always check on-street parking signs.
Passes are not eligible for commercial, oversized, inoperable or unplated vehicles, boats or trailers and are exclusively for personal vehicles.
Between November 1 - April 15 passes will not be issued more than 48 hours in advance due to the possibility of inclement weather. At such times of a snow event is forecast to allow snow plows access to City streets. A message will be posted on the overnight parking registry when a snow event is in effect, please check prior to parking your vehicle on the street if you have previously applied for an overnight pass. Parking enforcement will occur during a snow event.
