Owners or the agency acting on behalf of the owner are eligible to participate in the Agency Program. Businesses and associations such as condominiums, hospitals, malls, schools, retail and service stores, etc. can apply to the City to become a private parking agency. A private parking agency requires a Parking Administrator and one Agency Parking Enforcement Officer per site. Agencies may have more than one enforcement officer.
The Private Agency Parking Enforcement program allows businesses and private property owners to become private parking agencies. Agencies are authorized to issue parking tickets on their property by the City's Parking Enforcement Section.
The City's program and training is FREE. The agency is required to gain security clearances for their parking staff from the Edmonton Police Service. Call 780-423-4567 for more information about security clearances.
The business or association submits applications for a Parking Administrator and Agency Parking Enforcement Officer(s) to the Citizen Services Department. When the applications are approved, the City conducts an inventory of the signs at the agency's parking lots. After this assessment, the Administrator and Enforcement Officer(s) must attend a one-day training session. Call 780-496-5174 to book the session.
A Parking Administrator is the person from the agency who acts as a liaison to the City and ensures that officers properly fill out parking tickets. The Administrator cannot issue parking tickets.
An Agency Parking Enforcement Officer writes parking tickets to vehicles parked in violation of the Traffic Bylaw #5590. The officer is only authorized to write tickets on the agency's property where the parking signs are appropriate.
Owners must provide proof of ownership as confirmed by a Land Titles Certificate.
IF you are not the owner of the land (as confirmed by a Land Titles certificate) please provide the following:
- A letter from the owner authorizing you to act as
their Agent and;

permission from the owner to enforce parking
restrictions on their behalf.
Note: At anytime the City of Edmonton Parking Enforcement Services has the right to request additional proof of ownership/or documentation showing permission to enforce Parking Restriction on Private Property.
