BEFORE YOU BUY A PERMIT
KNOW THE RULES
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., 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.

GATHER THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTS
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 principle driver, as well as the license plate number, make, model, year, and colour of the vehicle is required.
**In the event a new vehicle is purchased or your license plate changes, please email a copy of your new ICBC vehicle registration documents to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring them to Engineering, City Hall 511 Royal Avenue.
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.
