Parking – Winter and streetside

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 parking

Under current municipal regulation, parking on the streets at night is prohibited between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., from December 1 to April 1 of the following year.

However, it is possible to park your vehicle during this period when no prohibition notice is issued by the municipality. This permission applies only to the even numbered side of the streets and is applicable to the entire territory, with the exception of streets where signs already prohibit parking and streets appearing on the list of exceptions.

  • In order to allow for the passage of emergency vehicles at all times, parking permits do not apply to streets that are 6.5 metres wide or less. The same applies to certain private streets and to areas where parking is already prohibited by signage.

    Consult the list of streets where winter overnight parking is prohibited at all times

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.
