City officials have officially resumed on-street permit parking enforcement throughout Toronto after being paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Enforcement was resumed as of 12 am today, after the deadline to renew or purchase permits was extended to August 7 in order to maximize the window for residents.
In March, Toronto Police announced that parking enforcement had been suspended for a number of offences, such as on-street parking time limits, in light of the pandemic. However, in July, the City said they were going to begin phasing back in parking enforcement over “the next several weeks.”
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 City of Toronto reminds residents that starting Friday, August 14 at midnight, permit parking enforcement on residential streets in the city will resume. Enforcement, as well as the renewal and issuance of residential street parking permits, had been paused due to COVID-19.
