Parking Regulations,
Public Holiday Enforcement

On Christmas Day 2015, Boxing Day 2015 and New Year’s Day 2016 Toronto motorists get a break on the usually strict parking enforcement laws. Payment is not required at on-street parking meters and pay-and-display machines on these statutory holidays. Further, the time sensitive (rush hour) rules for “No Stopping” and “No Parking” during rush hour (ie- 3pm – 7pm Monday to Friday), are not being enforced. Regular enforcement of all parking regulations will be in effect after boxing day and before New Year’s Day and again, starting on January 2, 2016.

The TPA utilizes leading technology in an environmentally responsible manner in its operations. As an example, the TPA has been using solar powered pay-and-display units since 1999, making it one of the first uses of photovoltaic technology by the City.
