Ticket Appeal/Administrative Review

Due to a higher than normal demand for administrative reviews, please allow additional time for your review to be processed. The fine schedule will remain frozen until the day you are contacted by CPA about the outcome. Thank you for your patience. 

If you received a parking ticket from the Calgary Parking Authority, you can request an administrative review and appeal your ticket. When you request a review, a CPA Administrator investigates your parking ticket and checks to see if an error was made when the ticket was issued and whether the ticket can be withdrawn.

Please note that the fine payment schedule stops once a ticket has been submitted for an administrative review. Once a review is completed, if your ticket is not withdrawn and you choose to pay your parking fine, the fine payment schedule will resume on the day you've been contacted by CPA about the outcome. For example, if you submit a review during tier one (first 10 days of receiving the ticket), you would resume in this tier when contacted about its status.

Please note:

  • The Calgary Parking Authority may not withdraw parking tickets on the basis of compassionate reasons or on the basis of mitigating circumstances. If an appeal is based on compassionate or mitigating circumstances, the matter must be heard by the Provincial Court. Please see Court Appeal for more information.
  • Paid parking tickets are an admission of guilt, and as such an administrative review is unnecessary.
  • If a court conviction has already occurred, the CPA is not allowed to accept a review.
  • The vehicle owner remains responsible to follow all instructions of the court regardless of the status of this Calgary Parking Authority Administrative Review process.

NOTE: When submitting a ticket appeal that includes credit card information to prove a purchase, please do not submit your full credit information. In order to verify a payment we only require the following information: the first 6 and last 4 digits of your credit card number; please do not supply your access code or expiry date information.

If your parking tag number begins with a 4 or 5 or the information is handwritten, be advised that this may have been issued by a municipal agency other than the Calgary Parking Authority and may not be eligible for our online review system. This ticket is still valid and a review still can be submitted by emailing us at cpaappeal@calgaryparking.com. Write a detailed description on why you are disputing the parking tag. Please ensure you give your name, phone # and email address for us to contact you back. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 403-537-7100.
