Like many other communities, the City of Cornwall has parking restrictions in place during the winter season.
These restrictions are necessary in order to ensure snow clearing activities can be completed in a safe and effective manner.
In recent years, the City has modified the winter parking restrictions in order to provide more flexibility to motorists whenever weather conditions permit.
The restrictions work as follows:
From November 15th to December 14th
Parking on any roadway between the hours of 1 am – 7 am is prohibited ONLY on days when a snowfall of 5 centimetres or more is forecasted by Environment Canada.
During the early restriction period, residents are encouraged to keep an eye on the weather forecast and local media reports. When a parking restriction is in effect, it will also be posted on the City website and social media pages.
Residents can also use the Pingstreet app to receive immediate updates on restrictions (for more information on Pingstreet please click here).
Residents can also call (613) 932-5354 to confirm whether parking restrictions are in place.
From December 15th to March 31st
Parking on any roadway between the hours of 1 am – 7 am is prohibited regardless of weather forecast.
From March 1st to March 31st
During this period, the Infrastructure & Municipal Works Department may make an exception to the overnight winter parking restrictions based on the status of existing snow accumulation and the weather forecast.
Should the overnight parking restrictions be lifted during this period, a notice will be published on the City’s website as well as social media and Pingstreet.
Please Note: Any posted parking restriction shall be observed in addition to the above overnight restrictions.
