New streamlined parking by-law comes into effect September 1, 2016

Released: August 31, 2016 at 1 p.m.
Changes include ability to add 30 minutes to on-street paid parking when initial maximum time has expired as well as creation of new types of permits

Winnipeg, MB - A new streamlined consolidated parking by-law comes into effect on September 1, 2016. The new Winnipeg Parking By-Law creates a point of reference for citizens to find most parking regulations. It also addresses changes that have occurred in the City, its traffic patterns and developments in technology.

Notable changes as a result of this new by-law include:

  • The ability to pay for 30 additional minutes after the initial maximum paid parking time limit has expired.
  • The ability to obtain a Temporary Recreational Vehicle Permit to allow parking for up to 3 days, rather than the previous one hour limit.
  • The requirement to move your vehicle to a different block once the maximum allowable time posted expires.
  • Making the rules about the number, type and location of vehicles parked on residential properties a parking offence as well as a zoning violation. This allows enforcement by the WPA in addition to other by-law enforcement officers in the City.
  • A change that requires street work signs to be posted 24 hours in advance of scheduled street work rather than in as little as 6 hours in advance in some circumstances.
  • A requirement that vehicles parked on a street cannot be connected to an electrical cord or wire that crosses the edge of the street.
