Winter wonderland brings winter parking bans

WEST CARLETON – With winter weather comes winter parking bans.

So, double-check your parking plans if you are heading out this evening (Sunday, Jan. 20) as Ottawa and its neighbours have issued overnight parking bans.

Due to weather conditions, a winter overnight parking ban is in effect tonight between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. across Ottawa. This overnight parking ban will remain in effect until the City announces it has been lifted.

During an overnight parking ban, residents are reminded that there is no parking on city streets so that crews can plow easily and effectively. Vehicles parked on the street during an overnight parking ban may be ticketed and towed. On-street parking permit holders are exempt from this restriction. Non-permit holders can avoid fines by not parking on the street overnight.

During winter overnight parking bans, residents will have free access to covered City-owned parking garages. Visit for more information about which City garages are free during winter overnight parking bans

For more winter parking information, please visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401).

Carleton Place

The overnight parking ban will be in effect this evening to allow for snow removal operations.

This means parking is prohibited on all Town streets between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. to allow for snow clearing operations.

Vehicles parked in violation of the ban will be ticketed and towed to the Library Parking Lot on Beckwith Street.
