This permit allows residents within a Residential Parking Program area (i. e. a neighbourhood with signs along the streets stating "Except Residents With Valid Permit") to park their vehicles on the street.
The Residential Parking Program ensures parking is available for residents in areas with high on-street parking demands, like a neighbourhood near a large sports facility or educational institution.This permit must be displayed on the vehicle's front windshield (driver's side bottom) and must be visible from outside the vehicle. A renewal letter and annual permit is sent out each year.
Conditions and Exceptions
Permits are available to residents of single family homes and multi-family buildings under 4 storeys in height within the program area.
If you have a vehicle that is over 4500kg, it cannot be legally parked in any residential area, with or without a permit. Overweight vehicles may be tagged and towed.
To apply for this parking permit complete the Parking Permit Application and submit via mail, fax or email.
The following are required for an annual parking permit:
- Valid Vehicle Registration: If the vehicle is registered in someone else's name and registered to a different address, then a letter authorizing vehicle usage is required from the registered owner (i. e. if an offspring is using the parent's car, a letter authorizing such use is required)
- Proof of Residency: Items used as proof of residency include a driver's licence, a utility bill, lease or purchase agreement, or a letter from the landlord.
There is no cost for residential parking permits.
