Starting Friday, August 14 at midnight, permit parking enforcement on residential streets in Toronto will resume. Enforcement, as well as the renewal and issuance of residential street parking permits, had been paused due to COVID-19.
The period to renew existing, or purchase new, six and twelve-month on-street parking permits began on July 2 when the parking permit office resumed operation. It was extended to Friday, August 7 to maximize the window for residents. All requests for six and twelve-month residential parking permits should be submitted as soon as possible to ensure permits arrive before August 14.
Approximately 80 per cent of parking permits have been renewed since July 2. Typically, about 10 per cent of permit holders do not renew for various reasons, including moving residences or no longer owning a vehicle.
Existing permit holders were contacted directly by mail throughout the month of July and parking permit office hours were extended for phone and email inquiries. Information about the renewal period was shared by the City’s social media accounts and toronto.ca was updated with details, including a convenient online renewal system that uses licence plate information.
Temporary daily and weekly parking permits can be purchased online anytime at toronto.ca/parking.
