Parking

During the winter, from November 15 to April 1, overnight on-street parking is not allowed. It is allowed for the rest of the year, unless indicated otherwise by signage.

Winter Parking Information Line

Although on-street parking is prohibited from November 15 to April 1 between midnight and 7:00 AM, a winter parking information line (450-455-3372) is set up to loosen relax this rule and adapt to weather conditions. Every day at 5:00 PM, the message at this number is updated to let you know if street parking is permitted or prohibited, starting at midnight. The decision to allow or not allow street parking depends not only on weather conditions, but also on snow removal operations.

New: Be notified of parking bans by subscribing to notices and notifications on the City's new citizen portal. You will be able to sign up to receive notifications by e-mail, text message or mobile notification. Despite the implementation of this platform, the winter parking information line (450-455-3372) remains the safest source of information, particularly in the event of legal recourse. It is therefore to be preferred.

Note that some exceptions apply. Therefore where there is a sign prohibiting parking, the parking sign takes precedence over the telephone message (see Appendix B of By-law No. 1806). 

Towing

In the event that a vehicle does not comply with the parking prohibition and interferes with snow removal operations, it will be towed to one of the following locations and $85 fees will apply.:

  • on the same street, in a place where he won't interfere with these operations;
  • in the nearest street;
  • at the municipal garage (205, rue Valois).

Citizens can contact 311 at any time to find out where their vehicle was towed.

No person shall abandon or leave unoccupied a motor vehicle on a highway or in a municipal parking lot for a continuous period of more than 72 hours (April 2 to November 14) and more than 48 hours (November 15 to April 1st).
