Overnight parking on City Streets is prohibited during the winter months, from November 15th, to March 15th, between the hours of 3:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.

The City of St. Thomas has available Overnight Parking Permits. The permit is available to residents whose property meets the eligibility criteria as set out in the Traffic and Parking By-Law 45-89. The cost of the permit is $56.50 for the season.  

In summary the By-Law states:
If the property has two or more parking spaces (including garage(s)), a permit will not be issued, and, If the property has the potential for two parking spaces, a permit may be issued for one year only on the condition that the property owner will develop the second parking space while also complying with the City Zoning By-law and Policies.

For multi-dwelling properties, requests for Overnight Parking Permits must be made by the property owner/landlord.  Proof of property ownership must be presented to the Environmental Services counter.  Permits will not be issued to tenants living in a multi-unit dwelling where there are limited permits available in relation to  the number of tenants and their parking requirements.

In addition to the seasonal overnight parking permits, guest parking passes are available at a cost of $2 per night during the period of November 15 - March 15.

NEW Requests for Overnight Parking Permits should be submitted online. If you have previously qualified for an ONP permit there is no need to send in another request.  Simply visit the Environmental Services Department to purchase your permit. Any questions should be directed to Environmental Services.  We are available Monday to Friday, from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. at 519-631-1680 ext 4161.
