GETTING VAUGHAN PARKING PERMITS FOR YOUR GUESTS JUST GOT BETTER
City of Vaughan launches new online service that allows residents to more easily access parking permits for overnight parking for their visiting guests. The new electronic system offers a more flexible on-demand way for residents to obtain parking permits in Vaughan.
Permits are granted instantly and no longer requires you to print them out for display on the dash. Vaughans enforcement officers will be able to check their system in realtime to ensure a parking permit has been obtained.
Some important points to note:
• parking permits cannot exceed 10 consecutive days
• maximum of 60 total days in a year
• strictly for visitors; residents are not permitted to use these permits
• each permit will cost $7
Visitors, construction and monthly parking permits can still be obtained in person at Vaughan City Hall and over the phone at 905-832-2281, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Vaughan Visitor Parking – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: As a resident of Vaughan, can I apply for a permit on behalf of my guest?
A: Yes. You must ensure the address reflects where your guest will be parking
Please note: Permits for on-street parking are not available for residents. Resident vehicles found parked with a visitor’s permit on their vehicle will be issued a ticket and may be towed at the owner’s expense.
Q: I do not have a printer. How do I get a Visitor Overnight Parking Permit?
A: The new system does not require permits to be printed. It is fully electronic and enforcement will be able to see your valid permit in their system.
Q: I have obtained a visitor permit, however, my plans have changed and I now require a permit for a different day. What can I do?
A: Please contact By-law and Compliance, Licensing and Permit Services at 905-832-2281. Have your permit information available when you call.
Q: I am a visitor and need to park my vehicle on the street during the day. Are the visitor permits only valid from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.?
A: If there is a valid visitor permit clearly visible on the dashboard of the vehicle, you will not receive a ticket for regular street parking. This includes the three-hour limit from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and an exemption from the street parking restriction between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. However, a visitor permit will not exempt you from any other parking violations.
Q: There is no street parking available at the address that my permit is for. What do I do?
A: If you are unable to park near the address posted on the permit, please park as close to that address/street as possible. Ensure you are not violating any other parking by-laws and be aware of any “no parking” signs in the area.
Q: As a resident, can I get a permit for my own car? I do not have enough space on my driveway.
A: Visitor Overnight Parking Permits are for guests and not intended for resident use. If a permit is found issued to a resident’s vehicle, it will be revoked, a penalty may be issued and the vehicle may be towed at the owner’s expense.
Q: How do I get a permit for my guest if I don’t know their licence plate number?
A: Please contact By-law and Compliance, Licensing and Permit Services at 905-832-2281 for assistance.
