Temporary Recreational Vehicle Parking Permit
Effective September 1st, 2016, the owner/lessee of a recreational vehicle may apply for a temporary permit that will exempt the vehicle specified in the permit from parking time limits and one-hour limits that apply to large vehicles, trailers, etc.
- A temporary RV permit allows a single recreational vehicle to be parked on-street a maximum of 4 times per calendar year (January 1 – December 31), with a maximum duration of 3 days per occurrence.
- An applicant may purchase up to a maximum of 4 permits per household within a calendar year, with each permit being registered to one specific recreational vehicle.
A “recreational vehicle” (RV) means a vehicle designed for camping and other recreational purposes. It includes, but is not limited to, a motorhome, a truck on which a camper has been installed, a camping or travel trailer, and any trailer carrying recreational equipment such as a boat or other watercraft, a snowmobile, all-terrain vehicle or other off-road vehicle.
Your licence plate will act as your permit. These permits are Virtual; you will not receive a physical permit to display.
