The City of Ottawa is implementing a winter weather parking ban between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 4.

Environment Canada has already issued a winter storm warning for the nation’s capital, saying that Ottawa is expecting to see 15 centimetres of snow starting on Sunday, Dec. 3 and into Monday, Dec. 4 with some freezing rain mixed in.

The weather agency has warned people in Ottawa to expect traffic delays and a messy commute due to weather conditions

During a winter weather parking ban, parking is not allowed on city streets so crews are able to plow and cleanup.

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 select OC Transpo park and rides as well as certain recreation centres. Some City parking garages are available for parking during winter parking bans, however it is important that residents take note of what time they need to remove their car.

Commercial main streets

To help residents shop local, some commercial main streets are exempt from winter parking bans. When a parking ban is called during winter weather events, residents can park in the identified areas while observing all posted signage and pay and display requirements.
