Provincial Accessible Parking Permits

Overnight Parking

Overnight parking of licensed personal automobiles and motorcycles on residential streets is allowed between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. from April 1 to November 30, annually. These vehicles can park on the street for a maximum of 12 hours. This is to keep the continue flow of traffic within the City moving and avoids vehicles being left on the roadways for days at time not moving.

Please note, there are no overnight parking options available from December 1 to March 31. On-street parking is not permitted between 2:00am and 5:30pm during this time.

Recreational Vehicle (RV) Parking

In June of 2020, Council approved changes that allowed for a balanced approach to this neighbourhood issue that provides recreational vehicle owners with the opportunity to use their front yard driveway for parking during the warm months of the year, when they are most active with RVs.
Below is a guide to successful planning before bringing your recreational vehicle home for the summer!

May 1 – October 31:
Residents may park their RVs on their driveways in the front yard of the property during this warmer seasonal time. They may also keep them parked in their side yard or in the rear yard provided, they are parked on a hard surface and are 0.6 metres away from the lot line or sidewalk.

November 1 – April 30:
Residents may not park their RVs on their driveways in the front yard of the property during this winter period. They may keep them parked in their side yard or in the rear yard provided, they are parked on a hard surface and are 0.6 metres away from the lot line. If parking on their property cannot be accommodated, they are required to find parking in a private lot off-site.
