Overnight Street Parking Request

During the winter, you can’t park on Markham streets between the hours of 2:30 AM and 6 AM. You can only park on the street if signs tell you that it is allowed, or there is a parking permit program in place. You’ll be fined $50 for breaking these rules.

The City can make exceptions for driveway repairs and out of town overnight guests.

Remember, a parking exemption won’t stop you from getting a ticket or being towed if your vehicle blocks snow clearing or road maintenance. As of January 1, 2016, you’ll be fined $150 for blocking or interfering with snow removal.

We don’t make exemptions during bad weather. There are also no exemptions for:

  • Commercial vehicles
  • Boats
  • Trailers
  • School buses
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Un-plated vehicles
  • Multiple offenders with parking infractions that haven’t been paid
  • People with more than 5 exemptions per plate in one year.

You can’t have more than 5 exemptions per plate per year.

You need a road occupancy permit for dumpsters and container bins.

To get an exemption, you’ll need to fill out the form below with this information:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Vehicle License Plate Number and Province/State (this data must be accurate)
  • Length of time

Important Notes:

  • We need to receive overnight exemption requests before 1 AM
  • Please make sure that all your information is accurate. You can get an infraction if you’re not accurate. 
  • Even if your plate number wasn’t entered accurately, your infraction is still valid. 
  • You will get an e-mail confirmation if you’ve applied for an exemption correctly. 
  • Markham has a Winter Parking Safety Program. During winter, residents can only park on the odd-numbered side of residential streets during the day. You can only park on the other side of the road if signs allow it.
