City of Vaughan Permit Changes


The City is working to improve parking options for residents. In an effort to provide greater flexibility, changes are being made to the visitor and construction parking permit process. The new electronic process grants permission instantly and removes the need to display a printed permit.

Changes Coming Soon…

  • Permits will be electronic and will not need to be printed or displayed.
  • Residents will be able to create an account online to get a permit instantly
  • Permit limits will be expanded to allow for more flexibility
  • A fee of $7 will apply

The Current Permit Process…

1. Construction parking permits

Until the new changes come into effect, residents can request permission to park on the street when undertaking construction or renovation work on their private property. Permits are issued at no cost for a maximum of 30 days per calendar year. Applications are available in person at Vaughan City Hall, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or online.

Please note
:
 Permits are not transferable between licence plate numbers. Non-used permit dates cannot be cancelled and reissued at a later time if the dates have already passed.

2. Monthly parking permits

There are five streets for which monthly parking permits are available in designated areas only:

  • Cidermill Avenue (valid Mondays through Fridays, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
  • Sharer Drive (valid Mondays through Fridays, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
  • Whitmore Drive (valid Mondays through Fridays, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
  • Woodstream Boulevard (valid Mondays through Fridays, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
  • Napa Valley Boulevard
  • La Neve Avenue (pilot project until Sept. 30, 2017)

Permits are available for purchase one week prior to the start of the next month and must be applied for in person at Vaughan City Hall, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at a cost of $52 per month.

Please note: Permits purchased once the month has started are not pro-rated and are non-refundable, but are interchangeable as they are not issued to a particular vehicle/licence plate number.
3.)Visitor Parking Permits

Until the new changes come into effect, visitors can request permission to park on city streets overnight at no cost. These permits are available online and in person at Vaughan City Hall, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., if the applicant provides the visitor’s licence plate number. Visitor permits are limited to five permits per licence plate per month. 

Please note: Permits for on-street parking are not available for residents. Resident vehicles found parked with a visitor’s permit on their vehicle will be issued a ticket and may be towed at the owner’s expense.
