Overnight on-street parking restrictions begin December 1

Overnight on-street parking restrictions are back December 1 and we’re rolling out our new online parking exemption portal. You must register as a new user at parkingguelph.aimsparking.com before applying for an exemption.

The new system offers:

  • Email confirming your exemption.
  • Password automatic reset without having to call bylaw.
  • Notification if your exemption is cancelled due to heavy snow or a plow out.

About parking exemptions

Overnight on-street parking restrictions run until April 1. You can’t park on restricted streets between 2-6 a.m. unless you have a parking exemption.

Up to 12 visitor parking exemptions are allowed per residence per year. Each exemption is valid for a maximum of two vehicles for two consecutive nights. Exemptions are cancelled if a heavy snow fall is forecasted or a plow out is called. You will receive an email if your parking exemption is cancelled. Tickets for parking overnight on-street in illegal areas are $35. Vehicles may be towed at the owner’s expense if emergency vehicles or snow plows are unable to pass safely.

Things to keep in mind with parking exemptions:

  • Vehicles have to be legally parked; all parking and bylaw regulations still apply with overnight exemptions.
  • Exemptions are suspended for 48 hours during heavy snowfall or when a plow out is called. We’ll email you directly if exemptions are cancelled.
  • Reach out to your neighbours for shared parking spaces to keep the streets open for plows. Sign up for plow-out email alerts at ca/snow.
  • Downtown municipal parking and City arena parking lots can be used if exemptions are cancelled.
