Drivers will no longer be able to park on Toronto streets without paying as police will be resuming on-street parking enforcement starting on July 2.

Toronto police had stopped issuing parking tickets for several occurrences due the COVID-19 pandemic, given that more people were staying home during the day and officers were directed to other areas of need, focused on health and safety.

Starting on Thursday, there will be enforcement of change-over parking in areas where parking regulations require a change from one side of the street to the other based on the time of day and enforcement of paid on-street parking regulations.

The City of Toronto will begin accepting and issuing new and renewed parking permits on Thursday. The office will be closed, but will be accessible by phone and email.

Permit parking enforcement had also been paused during the pandemic. It will resume on August 14 at midnight.
