Residential parking permits
A residential parking permit ensures that you have priority parking on the street in your neighbourhood.
Residential parking programs are created in areas where there is a high demand for parking. This can include neighbourhoods with schools, hospitals, or busy commercial areas.
Streets with residential parking combine restricted resident parking with time-limited and unregulated spaces for visitors.
Exceptions to residential parking rules
A vehicle is exempt from the residential parking rules if it is:
- Displaying a valid SPARC permit for people with disabilities. These vehicles can park for up to three hours
- A car share vehicle (Modo, Zipcar, and car2go). Car share vehicles can park for an unlimited amount of time in residentially restricted zones, in support of our goal to become the greenest city by 2020
