Types of invoices

The payment methods and other information on this page are for financial services invoices, including:

  • monthly parking
  • Direct Detect
  • other city services where a financial services invoice is issued

To pay your parking ticket, visit our parking ticket payments page.

Financial services invoices do not include tax or utility e-billing.

If you have any questions, please contact customer service or call 519-741-2450.


By default, we will send your invoices by mail. If you prefer to get your financial service invoices by email, sign up for our free e-invoicing program.

When you sign up for e-invoicing, you will stop getting invoices by mail. Please add the email address to your contacts to ensure our invoice emails don't end up in your spam or junk folder.

When you sign up for e-invoicing, you'll need your most recent City of Kitchener financial service invoice. Please review the guidelines below before signing up.

Guidelines for e-invoicing

  • This registration for e-invoicing applies to all finance invoices related to the customer number provided. This registration does not apply to property tax or utility bill.
  • By registering for e-invoicing, you will no longer receive a paper invoice. However, you can print a paper copy of your invoice and you may also request a mailed copy of a paper invoice for an additional charge.
  • You will provide true, accurate, current, and complete information requested in our e-invoicing registration form.
  • You will not misrepresent your identity.
  • You will keep your registration and account information up to date and accurate.
  • E-invoice(s) can be sent to only one email address - the address in your registration form.
  • If you have more than one account with us, you will need to register each account separately for e-invoicing.

Payment methods

These payment methods are available for paying your financial services invoice:

Through your bank

To pay using online, mobile or telephone banking:

Contact your bank's customer service department if this does not work.

You can also pay your bill at an ATM or with a teller at most banks.

In either situation, please allow at least four business days for your bank to process the transaction and send us your payment.
