Disputing a parking ticket or by-law notice

To dispute a parking ticket or by-law notice, you or your agent must act within 15 days of ticket issuance. Acting beyond the 15 day period may result in additional fees.

Online screening

If your ticket was issued for any of these offences, you may resolve your dispute online:

  • Parking longer than three hours where prohibited
  • Parking overnight (2 to 6 a.m.) where prohibited
  • Park facing the wrong way
  • Park on/overhang sidewalk
  • Park at an expired parking meter
  • Park without authorized ticket, payment or permit

This process requires an online booking where the reason for dispute is submitted to the Screening Officer to review. A decision is delivered by email once completed.

The initial screening meeting is overseen by a screening officer who has the authority to uphold, reduce, or extend time to pay the penalty. Valid tickets are not cancelled.

If you are not satisfied with the decision of the screening officer, you have up to 15 days after the decision to request a review by an independent hearing officer. The decision of the hearing officer is final. To request a review by a hearing officer, you or your agent must submit a Notice of Intention to Appear at a Hearing Meeting form to the Town of Oakville within 15 days of the screening decision. This form is available by contacting Enforcement Services at parking@oakville.ca or by phone at 905-845-6601.
