Request a new permit zone or changes to an existing zone

Residential permit parking zones are typically created on local neighbourhood streets where there is a high demand for parking.

You can request the City introduce a new residential permit parking zone or make changes to an existing zone by calling 3-1-1.

 You can expect a wait time of approximately 12 months before your request comes up in our queue and we proceed with the case, or we determine that a contact is required sooner.

How a permit zone is created or changed

Step 1: Submit your request

Step 2: Complete a preliminary permit parking survey

Step 3: Complete a final permit parking survey

Step 4: Permit parking signs are installed by the City
