Overnight parking restrictions return next week after Labour Day, but starting Tuesday, September 4th, drivers can also register their vehicles using the overnight parking pass system, for overnight parking. A maximum of fifteen free passes may be issued per vehicle license plate, and it is valid on most City streets.
One pass is valid for one night of overnight parking, and you must register for specific dates.
Passes can be obtained online through the City’s website, by phone at 519-661-4537 or in person at the Parking Services Office, 824 Dundas Street. Passes for multiple days and multiple license plates may be obtained with one submission.
Up until November 1, passes may be obtained in advance or day of as required.
Between November 1 and April 15 passes will not be issued more than 48 hours in advance to help mitigate weather concerns. Over the winter months, overnight parking may be restricted to allow snow clearing operations. At such times when passes are revoked, pass holders will be notified via email, provided a valid email was included with the pass request.
Drivers are reminded that all other parking restrictions remain in effect, including prohibited parking and stopping areas, fire routes and the requirement to remove all vehicles from the street during snow clearing operations.
Overnight parking cannot occur in locations where parking is otherwise prohibited or restricted, such as in front of fire hydrants, on boulevards or front lawns or on streets that are identified as exempt from on-street parking. A complete list of those streets is available online.
Overnight parking passes are required until Victoria Day, at which time the overnight parking restriction is lifted.
