A reminder that as of December 1, winter parking restrictions are in effect on signed streets in our community. Several streets have restricted parking on one side of the road until March 31 to assist with snow clearing and safety during the winter months.

Also, between November 15 to April 1, there is no on-street parking between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. when Environment Canada forecasts 7 cm or more of snow in the Ottawa area. This includes any forecast for a range of snow more than 7 cm, such as 5 to 10 cm. Vehicles without a residential parking permit that are parked on the street during an overnight parking ban will be ticketed and towed.

When an overnight winter parking ban is made, the City issues a special advisory to the local media and posts it on ottawa.ca. The parking ban ends when snow clearing is completed and the City issues an advisory indicating that it has been lifted. You can sign up to receive Winter Parking Alerts by email or follow the City of Ottawa on Twitter for updates.
