Key Things To Know About the Parking Changes

Starting July 21, a new parking strategy has been introduced to the Marketplace lot that will offer drivers the first hour free. Following that, drivers will be charged for the 2nd hour at a rate of $3 if they pay by cash or credit, or $2 an hour if they pay by phone, through the app "Passport-Canada".

New parking metres will track vehicles' licence plates, meaning an attendant will no longer patrol the lot. The existing two-hour parking limit will remain in place, although drivers will have the option to return to the lot the same day provided they leave at least an hour between visits. Only one free parking session will be available per calendar day, and overnight parking is not permitted.

    Passes may be purchased at pay stations in the Day Lots or in person at Municipal Hall during business hours. License plate number is required. When Day Lots 1–3 are full, monthly passes are permitted in Day Lots 4 and 5.
