Parking may be a challenge for all the residents in downtown Winnipeg. City centre life is always busy, and parking is restricted or expensive. So, what to do if you live in the area and your apartment building has no parking? No worries, Winnipeg services took care of it!
A residential parking permit program is a secret gem for every Winnipeg resident. How does it work?
Every permit holder can park in their zone but still obey all traffic by-laws, such as snow removal bans and seasonal cleanings. The permit system makes you eligible to park without time restrictions.
To apply for a permit, visit http://theparkingstore.winnipeg.ca/theparkingstore/parkingInfo/residentialParkingProgram.stm and submit your application. You can also renew your current Residential Permit online.
What documents to include:
A photo ID with your current address (driver's license)
A Completed Application Form – you can download it through the same link
Valid MPI Registration (both white and blue certificates)
Current rental agreement, or utility bill
A valid e-mail address
You can also cancel your permit through the same online service.
Please, note: offline applications are available for renewal only. As a new resident, you need to apply online. For offline renewal, send your applications here:
