Parking Permits

Resident pERMIT PArking

Resident permit parking can be installed in situations where chronic and significant on-street parking by non-residents is occurring.

Resident permit parking regulations are intended for blocks where at minimum 50% of the street frontage is includes single-detached residential or low-rise residential multiple dwelling units. Only residents of properties within these street frontages would be eligible for permits. Resident permit parking allows residents to have priority parking in signed permit parking areas within a one block radius of their street. It does not guarantee permit holders an on-street parking space in front of their homes.

Permit parking is not intended to address short-term intermittent parking issues resulting from construction, or periodic and occasional events.  Resident permit parking is also not installed in response to parking demand generated by high-rise residential uses.


    Eligible residents living in a permit parking area may purchase permits to exempt them from posted permit parking regulations within a one block radius of their address. If the area is time regulated (e.g. maximum 2 hours), it must state “except with permit” to allow permit holders to park over the prescribed time period. Permits do not provide parking exemptions for over-sized, over-weight vehicles or RV’s.

    Residential Parking Permits

    Residential parking permits are vehicle specific. A copy of an active ICBC insurance policy must be provided indicating your current address is within a designated parking permit area. This must also be provided each time your permit is renewed.

    In the case of company vehicles, a letter on company letterhead confirming the vehicle is a company vehicle, the address of the principal driver, as well as the license plate number, make, model, year and colour of the vehicle is required.

    Visitor Parking Permits

    A Visitor permit is not vehicle specific. There is only one Visitor permit hanger issued per household in a parking permit zone. This hanger must be displayed in your visitor's vehicle while parked on your street. Proof of residency, which indicates your name and current address (i.e., utility bill, lease agreement, driver's licence) must be shown at time of application and every year at renewal time. 

    Please note: If the visitor permit is lost or stolen before it expires, it will NOT be replaced until the expiry date displayed on the permit unless a police file # is provided.  Lost or stolen permits should be reported immediately.  Any misuse of Visitor permits, such as selling, renting or duplicating, may result in the cancellation of the permit and a $250.00 fine.


    Each household can apply for a maximum of four residential permits and one visitor permit
