Toronto will start enforcing on-street residential permit parking August 14th after the extension of the deadline to renew or purchase permits to August 7th.
In March, Toronto police announced that parking enforcement had been suspended for a number of offences such as on-street parking time limits. After a little more than three months, starting in July, the city said they were phasing back in parking enforcement over “the next several weeks.”
The city said that the period to renew existing or purchase a new parking permit was extended to August 7th “to maximize the window for residents.”
As of midnight, on August 14th, all permit parking will be enforced.
“All requests for six and twelve-month residential parking permits should be submitted as soon as possible to ensure permits arrive before August 14,” the city said in a news release.
The city said that permit holders were contacted directly by mail in July and that permit office hours were extended for phone and email inquiries.
The parking permit office itself remains closed to the public.
