Residential parking permits

A Canada Post service disruption may delay the delivery of your parking permit. If you successfully purchased a permit online, you will be allowed to park in the permit zone without displaying a permit.

A residential parking permit will allow you to park in your neighbourhood, but it may not guarantee parking in front of your property or in some cases, your block.

Streets with residential parking:

  • Help manage parking where on street parking is in high demand
  • Combine restricted resident parking with time-limited spaces for visitors
  • May be subject to temporary closure for construction, filming, and street cleaning;
     it's your  responsibility to be aware of these temporary changes and find alternate parking in these instances

Know the rules

 Remember to affix your decal to your vehicle's windshield upon receipt (you should receive it in 10 days). Vehicles not displaying a valid decal will be subject to a parking ticket.

Your permit is valid if:

  • You park within the zone that your residential address is in (for example: if you have a West End decal, you cannot park in the Mount Pleasant zone)
  • Your vehicle licence plate number matches the number printed on the decal 

Your permit is invalid if:

  • You move, change your vehicle, or licence plate
  • The decal is altered
