Parking Offences/Infraction Notice Information


If you get an infraction notice, you have a few options:

1. You can pay the infraction notice. The CPA uses an early payment incentive program that reduces the penalty amount if paid before 30 days. You can save as much as 20 per cent if you pay within 10 days of the offence.

2. You can request an Administrative Review to point out any errors related to your ticket. If we find an error, either in the applicability of the bylaw or in the way it was enforced, we won't pursue the ticket any further.

3. You can appeal your parking ticket in court. If you don't pay the infraction notice, you will receive a violation ticket in the mail. At this point, you have the option to appeal your violation ticket through the Provincial Court Appeal process.

If you require additional information regarding infraction notices, please contact our office at 403-537-7000, option 1 and press 1.
