City issues winter weather parking ban for Thursday, Jan. 26

These hours could be extended of additional time is needed for the City to complete winter road operations. 

With Environment Canada issuing a special weather statement and snowfall warning for the capital, which could see up to 20 centimetres of snow fall in Ottawa over the next two days, the City of Ottawa is implementing a winter weather parking ban which takes into effect on Thursday, Jan. 26 between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. 

These hours could be extended of additional time is needed for the City to complete winter road operations. 

During a winter weather parking ban, parking is prohibited on city streets so crews can plow easily and effectively. Vehicles parked on the street during a ban may be ticketed and towed. On-street monthly parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction when they are parked in residential parking permit zones.

Available parking

During winter weather parking bans, residents will have access to select OC Transpo park and rides as well as certain recreation centres. Some City parking garages are available for parking during winter parking bans, however it is important that residents take note of what time they need to remove their car. Visit ottawa.ca/winterparking for more information about which City facilities are available during winter weather parking bans.

Commercial main streets

To help residents shop local, some commercial main streets are exempt from winter parking bans. When a parking ban is called during winter weather events, residents can park in the identified areas while observing all posted signage and pay and display requirements.
