Parking permit payments and time-of-day restrictions to be reinstated for October

September 18, 2020

Starting Oct. 1, the City of Kingston will reinstate on-street time-of-day parking restrictions and monthly parking permit payments. The City had temporarily lifted these payments and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has been gradually restoring parking operations as the province continues to reopen.

On-street time-of-day restrictions

On-street time-of-day parking restrictions will be reinstated effective Oct. 1. Time-of-day restrictions refer to streets that restrict parking for an hour in the morning and afternoon such as 10 to 11 a.m. and 2 to 3 p.m. This includes the residential parking permit areas. Parking regulations can be reviewed online at

Monthly parking permits

Payments for monthly on-street and surface parking permits will be reinstated effective Oct. 1. Current permit holders will receive an email notice with additional information on next steps to renew their permit. If you had paid for a month or more in advance between April and September, your permit will be automatically extended by the number of months paid in advance. Permit holders with questions about the renewal process can contact Customer Service at 613-546-0000, Monday to-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., or email [email protected].
