Seasonal parking rules and fines

Rules for parking and stopping violations are different in the summer and winter. These changes happen to address seasonal parking-related issues.

Public parking in the summer

Annual fee increase

Every year, from May 1 to September 30, the fee for parking and stopping will increase by $100 in the following areas south of Lakeshore Road, from the east city limits to Meadow Wood Road:

  • Local roads
  • City parks
  • Municipal parking lots


The fee increase doesn’t apply to violations that happen between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.  Vehicles violating traffic regulations during these hours will receive the regular fine amount.

Public parking in the winter

Avoid parking your vehicle on the street during winter weather (freezing rain, snowfall) to allow our winter crew to salt and clear the roads. This will allow us to keep our roads safe to drive on in the winter.

Temporary parking permit suspension

Before, during or after snowfall, the City may suspend existing temporary parking permits and pause on issuing new ones. This is to allow our winter crew to safely clear and salt the roads. During this time, please keep your motor vehicle(s) off the road.

To get updates about temporary suspensions, follow us on X @MississaugaSnow or call 311 (905-615-4311 if outside city limits)

Public parking suspension

The City may close off public parking areas (areas with paid municipal parking) affected by winter weather to be cleared and salted and for special events. These areas will have ‘no parking’ signs installed 24 hours before the event or snow removal begins.

Fines and penalties

You are not permitted to park your vehicle in areas with ‘no parking’ signs installed.

If your vehicle is parked in these areas or during the suspension, you may receive a parking ticket and have your vehicle towed. If your vehicle gets towed for being illegally parked, you will be responsible for paying all towing and storage fees.
