This permit allows residents within a Residential Parking Program area; a neighbourhood with signs along the streets stating "Except Residents With Valid Permit," to park their vehicles on the street.

About the Service

The Residential Parking Program ensures parking is available for residents in areas with high on-street parking demands, like a neighbourhood near a large sports facility or educational institution.

This permit must be displayed on the vehicle's front windshield (driver's side bottom) and must be visible from outside the vehicle. A renewal letter and annual permit is sent out each year. 

Conditions and Exceptions

Permits are available to residents of single family homes and multi-family buildings under 4 storeys in height within the program area.

If you have a vehicle that is over 4500kg, it cannot be legally parked in any residential area, with or without a permit. Overweight vehicles may be tagged and towed.


Valid vehicle registration(s) will be required for new applications. Updated copies will also be required upon each renewal.

If your registration does not match the address for the permit, a Temporary Residential Parking Permit may be required in the interim.

Temporary residents or applicants using a vehicle registered to an individual other than the applicant will only qualify for a Temporary Residential Parking Permit.

Vehicles registered to a post office box or a business are not eligible.

Passes are non-transferable.

How Do I Obtain the Service?

The following are required for an annual parking permit:
