Winter weather parking ban advisory

Due to weather conditions, the winter weather parking ban will be in effect between Saturday, January 16 at 7 pm and Sunday, January 17 at 7 am across Ottawa.

These hours might be extended if additional time is needed to complete winter road operations.

During a winter weather parking ban, parking is prohibited on city streets so crews can plow easily and effectively. Vehicles parked on the street during a ban may be ticketed and towed. On-street monthly parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction when they are parked in residential parking permit zones. 

Available parking

During winter weather parking bans, residents will have access to covered City-owned parking garages and select OC Transpo park and rides. Visit for more information about which City facilities are available at during winter weather parking bans.
