The parking by-laws ensure the smooth flow of traffic. The different sections of this page show the options and the related by-laws.

Winter season 2020-2021

At the November 16th Council meeting, a Notice of Motion was tabled to allow overnight parking during the winter period based on specific criteria. This amendment to the Parking By-law will be voted on at the December 7, 2020 Council meeting. If adopted, the amendments will be specified on this page.

Winter parking

From December 1 to April 1, it is prohibited to park in the streets at night between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Please remember:

  • A street that is not fully cleared due to a car illegally parked at night increases the risk of accidents and obstructs the passage of emergency vehicles.
  • A well-cleared street increases the safety of road users, especially children and people with reduced mobility.
  • Towing results in costs for the drivers at fault, as well as wasted time and pointless unpleasantness.
  • Night parking is permitted on Boulevard Rousseau during the following periods:

    • Sundays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays on the western side
      • From directly across from the northern corner of Rue Boileau going north to the intersection of Rue Jean-Marc-Sauvé, with the exception of a 5-m stretch:
        • North of the intersection of Rue Maupassant and Boulevard Rousseau
        • South of the intersection of Rue Maupassant and Boulevard Rousseau
    • Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on the eastern side
      • From 5 m north of the intersection of Rue Boileau going north to the intersection of Rue Jean-Marc-Sauvé, with the exception of a 5-m stretch
        • South of the intersection of Rue Jean-Marc-Sauvé.

    The parking ban is maintained on the section of Boulevard Rousseau surrounding the median strip.

    Parking is also allowed on the south side Rue Molson between Rue Saint-Charles and Rue Chaput.

Street parking

Except by necessary or when a provision of this by-law or the Highway Safety Code so allows, it is prohibited to stop a vehicle:

  • In a street for more than 24 consecutive hours
  • In a street, from Monday to Friday, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., for more than two hours in a way that constitutes an abuse likely to cause serious inconvenience or be harmful
  • In a drop-off zone or zone reserved exclusively for road vehicles assigned to the public transportation of people

Travel trailers and towing trailers can be parked in the street or on the public road for a maximum period of three consecutive hours.

Recreational vehicles can be parked in the street or on the public road for a maximum period of eight consecutive hours.

An administrative codification is a document that combines the original text of a by-law with all the amendments made since its adoption. It has no legal weight. It is rather a tool created solely to make it easier to read and understand the by-law as a whole. Only the original by-law and its amending by-laws have legal weight.
