It's almost time for the City to resume enforcing on-street permit parking throughout Toronto after being paused to do the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting on Friday, August 14 at midnight, the City will resume enforcement, after extending the deadline to renew or purchase permits to August 7 to maximize the window for residents.

In March, Toronto Police announced that parking enforcement had been suspended for a number of offences such as on-street parking time limits in light of the pandemic. However, in July, the City said they were going to begin phasing back in parking enforcement over “the next several weeks.”

"All requests for six and twelve-month residential parking permits should be submitted as soon as possible to ensure permits arrive before August 14,” the City said in a news release.

While the parking permit office remains closed to the public, it can be accessed in the short-term by phone at 416-392-7873 or you can email
