Parking Enforcement

The Toronto Police Service has been working closely with our City of Toronto Emergency Management partners in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been taking advice from public health officials and making decisions that balance our need to provide community safety with maintaining the health and safety of our members.

Starting July 2, 2020, the Parking Enforcement Unit will be returning to regular enforcement of on-street parking regulations with a phased-in approach over the next several weeks.

On Thursday, the following parking violations will be enforced in a regular and routine manner:

- enforcement of change-over parking in areas where parking regulations require a change from one side of the street to the other

- enforcement of paid on-street parking regulations

Members of the public will be required to move their vehicles to the permitted side of the street and pay for on-street parking, where required.

Parking Enforcement will continue to exercise discretion in other on-street areas and enforcement will only take place when necessary to ensure the safe flow of traffic.

Residential on-street parking permit enforcement, and the enforcement of expired vehicle license plate stickers will be suspended until such time as when the City of Toronto Parking Permit Office and Service Ontario are up to date on the issuance of permits and vehicle license plate stickers.

Further updates will be provided with news releases and will be made available at
