The permit parking program entitles permit holding residents to park their automobile on the street within a specified area exclusively during permit parking hours. This program generally services those residential areas where driveways and/or garages are not common.
Currently, the program is in effect in the communities of the former cities of Toronto, East York, and York and to a limited extent Etobicoke. Expansion of the permit parking program citywide, is under consideration.
Types of permits available and fees
Two types of permits are available in most areas: 6 & 12 month term resident-only permits; and, temporary resident or visitor permits.
- Temporary (resident/visitor): Temporary parking permits may be obtained to provide weekly on-street parking within the limits of a permit parking street or area.
All fees are subject to annual fee increases based on the Consumer Price Index and subject to change without prior notice.

Other acceptable documents showing proof of residence include: formal lease agreement or utility bill; Purchase & Sale Agreement if the applicant is the owner of the property; Bank Statement/Credit card statement, etc.; and Change of address receipt from Canada Post.
If there is currently parking on the property where you reside, you must provide evidence that you do not have access to it in order for you to obtain a permit at a lower fee. Such proof includes:
For applicants who own the property: a photocopy of the ownership(s) of vehicle(s) registered to that address and parked on the property.
For applicants who are tenants: a letter from the property owner stating that access to on-property parking is not available. If you live in an apartment, condominium, or town house, the letter should be on letterhead from property management.
