Overnight parking downtown

Overnight on-street parking is not permitted downtown. Downtown residents are encouraged to use municipal parking lots to accommodate guests. Please check signs to see where overnight parking is permitted.

Overnight parking restrictions December 1 to April 1

Each winter, Guelph restricts on-street parking to allow for the safe operation of snow removal, Guelph Transit and emergency vehicles.

Starting on December 1 at 2 a.m. until April 1 at 2 a.m. on-street parking is not permitted between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. unless otherwise posted.

Short-term on-street exemption permits are available for residents outside the downtown area:

  • Maximum two vehicles per exemption
  • Maximum two days per exemption
  • Maximum 12 exemptions per year

All on-street parking and parking exemptions may be suspended during winter storms and/or other emergencies.
