Parking enforcement

Oakville Parking Operations patrols and enforces parking by-laws throughout the town 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please remember that if you do not pay the final fine imposed, your Ontario vehicle permit sticker will not be renewed until the fine and all court costs and fees have been paid. Information may be provided to a credit bureau.

Call Service Oakville at 905-845-6601 to request enforcement for vehicles that you see parking illegally. Please have the location and a description of the vehicle ready. This number is available 24 hours a day with a staff person available Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; after hours and on weekends, you can leave a message for enforcement.

Parking in school areas

Dropping off and picking students up in school areas can cause a lot of extra traffic congestion. Illegally stopped or parked cars are a safety risk as they make it hard for other drivers to see pedestrians, particularly children, crossing the street.

For these reasons, streets around our schools have “No Stopping” and “No Parking” signs installed.

Please learn the difference between No Stopping and No Parking and help keep our school areas safe for children.
