Toronto police say they won’t be issuing tickets for some street parking bylaws on Labour Day Monday.

This includes parking meters, rush-hour routes and signs for bylaws normally enforced Monday to Friday. All other areas and parking offences — including no stopping, no standing and parking in front of a fire hydrant — will be enforced.

The city says the bylaws do apply on holidays, but the parking enforcement unit can choose whether to enforce them.

“Payment for parking is required 365 days a year,” the city says on its website.

“There is no exemption from the requirement to pay for on-street machines and meters on statutory holidays, however Toronto Police have the discretion to enforce the payment requirement.”
