Overnight parking exemptions


A parking exemption is required to park overnight in a legal parking spot between 2:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. Each license plate is allowed a maximum of five parking exemptions between Dec. 1 and March 31.  

Overnight Parking Exemption Terms and Conditions

  1. Parking exemptions will be cancelled and void during a Snow Event, road maintenance and/or other emergencies. During a Snow Event, all vehicles must be removed from the street and Tag and Tow by-law will be in effect. Vehicles parked on the street during a Snow Event, including those with a valid parking exemption, may be ticketed and towed.
  2. Parking exemptions cancelled by the City will NOT count towards the applicant’s total available exemptions.
  3. Vehicles with an approved parking exemption are required to be legally parked in a designated parking area. Illegally parked vehicles with a valid exemption will be ticketed.
  4. Vehicles can park for three consecutive hours on any city street, unless signs indicate otherwise. This means vehicles with a valid overnight parking exemption are eligible to park three hours before the exemption (11:30 p.m.) and up to three hours after the exemption (some restrictions apply i.e. school zones).
  5. Parking exemptions must be requested by 2 a.m.
  6. Overnight parking exemptions will not be granted for the following types of vehicles:
  • Vehicles over 4.5 metric tonnes
  • Unlicensed vehicle
  • Recreational vehicle
  • Trailer
  • Derelict vehicle (abandoned vehicle)
