The town is now in Stage 2 of the province’s reopening framework. More town amenities, programs and services are becoming available. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
NOTE: Due to COVID-19, temporary on-street parking permits are temporarily waived. Parking enforcement related to safety continues.
Residents and their visitors may now easily obtain a temporary on-street parking permit online. Offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this new online system is part of the town's commitment to provide easy access to our services.
All you need is access to a computer, licence plate number, and just a couple of minutes to fill out some basic information in order to get a permit. Once you complete the form and read and agree to the terms and conditions, a permit is issued immediately.
Temporary on-street permits will not allow for parking in areas that have temporary "no parking" signs or road closures posted for a special event.
