Municipal Parking Lots

DIGITAL PARKING PERMITS - Scroll down to Municipal Parking Permits to download the Hotspot Parking App to purchase a digital parking permit.

There are 10 municipal parking lots with 552 parking space including 12 accessible spaces. Each of our municipal lots is designated as either 2-hour free parking, permit parking, pay & display or a combination:

  • 2-hour Free Parking: Patrons may park for two hours without payment between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday.
  • Permit Parking: Patrons must purchase a monthly, a semi-annual (January to June and/or July to December) or an annual pass/permit. The permit must be displayed on the dash of the vehicle or on the rear-view mirror in order to be able to park the designated lots from Monday to Friday. Some lots have more than one designation. Please be sure to park in the appropriate spaces designated for permits. A parking permit does not exempt you from following the bylaws.
  • Pay and Display Parking: Patrons are required to pay using the on-site machine and place the receipt on the dash of their vehicle.

Residents and Visitors are required to adhere to all bylaws and posted signs or an infraction ticket will be issued.

Permits are only valid in our 'Permit-Designated' parking lots.  These permits are not valid on any street or in any two (2) hour only posted lots.  Scroll down to see which lots are designated permit parking lots.

During the winter season (Dec. 1 to March 31) there are overnight parking restrictions in our lots that you must adhere to.

What if I Don't Have a Smart Phone or Computer

If you do not have a computer or smart phone and, therefore, are not able to download the app, you may purchase your digital parking permit at the Engineering Department at 944 James Street.  Please note, that you will not have access electronically to change your vehicle plate numbers should you need to for whatever reason.  To have access, you will need to download the app and create an account. 

Should you need to change your vehicle plate number, please contact the Engineering Department (519-539-2382 ext. 3104 or 3102) to make that change for you.  If you fail to contact the Engineering Department in a timely manner, you will get a ticket, as your permit is registered and defaulted to only one vehicle plate number at a time. Please download the application form and bring it with you to the Engineering Department and be sure to include your email address on the application.  Engineering Department office hours are Mondays to Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We accept debit, cheque or cash. (No credit cards)

The lots are first come first serve and a permit does not reserve a spot in any of the lots. If a lot is full, please use any one of our other permit-designated lots. View out municipal parking lot map to see which of our lots is closest to where you need to be.
