Toronto Police To Enforce Paid On Street Parking On Holidays Starting Family Day

Starting February 19, 2024, drivers in Toronto will no longer enjoy free on-street parking during holidays. A notable practice on the nine statutory holidays celebrated in Ontario, where paid parking rules were not enforced historically, this status quo is set to change come Family Day, which falls on February 19.

The Toronto Police Service announced this shift, citing the city’s evolving needs and the increasing demand for parking, especially with streetcar corridors, bike lanes, and the presence of CafeTO adding to the competition for curb space. Authorities highlighted other infrastructure developments as additional reasons behind the decision to enforce paid on-street parking on holidays.

According to the Toronto Police Service, the decision aligns with existing bylaws that allow enforcement on statutory holidays. Previously, violation penalties were set at $30, but recent City Council decisions have increased the fine to $75 for those parking or leaving vehicles on municipal property without consent, with revenues going to the City of Toronto.
