Residential Parking Permit Program

Parking is restricted in some central or “activity hub” communities to limit excessive non-resident public on-street parking. This ensures residents and their visitors have reasonable access to parking at any time of day.

These areas are designated as Residential Parking Zones (RPZ), and Residential Parking Permits (RPP) are required to park your vehicle. 

You only need a permit if:

  • There are parking restrictions on your street;
  • Your address is eligible for a type of parking permit; AND
  • You want to park on-street in the restricted zones

Please note that these permits are still required on holidays, and they do not guarantee that a space will be available.

Residential Parking Restrictions

The City will consider modifying parking restrictions on a block in a Residential Parking Zone (RPZ) when requested by residents. This can be done by calling 311 or submitting a 311 request.
