Parking Considerations

If you are having out-of-town guests, driveway repairs or a special function, and require on-street parking in excess of five hours or overnight between 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. (existing parking by-law), you may obtain a parking consideration. Parking considerations will only be granted to allow parking in excess of five hours or overnight between 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. in designated parking areas. All other parking by-laws remain in effect. Note: Parking considerations obtained online are null and void during snow clearing operations, at no time is your vehicle permitted to obstruct snow removal.

A maximum 18 parking considerations will be granted per plate per year.

During snow clearing operations the Town has the right to suspend parking considerations. In addition, considerations will not be granted for commercial vehicles over 6.7 metres in length or 2.6 metres in height, school buses, commercial coaches, derelict vehicles, unlicensed vehicles (including vehicles with expired validations stickers) or immobile trailers.

For more information, please refer to the list of commercial vehicles which are not eligible for parking considerations due to height and length restrictions.
