Parking Enforcement

Oakville Parking Operations patrols and enforces parking by-laws throughout the town 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please remember that if you do not pay the final fine imposed, your Ontario vehicle permit sticker will not be renewed until the fine and all court costs and fees have been paid. Information may be provided to a credit bureau.

Call Service Oakville at 905-845-6601 to request enforcement for vehicles that you see parking illegally. Please have the location and a description of the vehicle ready.

Parking in school areas

Dropping off and picking students up in school areas can cause a lot of extra traffic congestion. Illegally stopped or parked cars are a safety risk as they make it hard for other drivers to see pedestrians, particularly children, crossing the street.

For these reasons, streets around our schools have “No Stopping” and “No Parking” signs installed.

Please learn the difference between No Stopping and No Parking and help keep our school areas safe for children.

No stopping

No Stopping means the halting of your vehicle is prohibited, even momentarily and even if occupied.

No Stopping requirements: no waiting allowed, no stopping (even for a moment) to pick up or drop off passengers or unloading of merchandise at curbside.

Penalty amount for each violation for No Stopping: $50

No parking

No Parking means you may stop momentarily to drop off passengers, but you may not sit in your vehicle indefinitely and you must not leave your vehicle unattended.

No Parking requirements: no waiting allowed, stopping allowed for a moment to pick up or drop off passengers or to unload merchandise at curbside.

Penalty amount for each violation for No Parking: $40

Fire zone requirements

Fire Zone requirements: no parking, no waiting allowed. Stopping momentarily, while remaining in your car, while actively loading or unloading packages or passengers is allowed.

Penalty amount for each violation for parking in a Fire Route: $100

Most penalty notices will be issued to the vehicle but there may be times that penalty notices will be be sent by mail.  This option of service by mail will be used when a vehicle drives away and the officer is not able to place the penalty on the vehicle.  For any penalty served by mail there is an additional administrative fee attached to the fine amount.
