Winter Parking Rules in the City of Saint John


Residents are reminded to call 658-4040

Residents in the North, East and West areas of the City are reminded that on street parking is allowed on streets unless a parking ban is called or unless otherwise prohibited by on-street signage and the Motor Vehicle Act. 

The parking restrictions mean that an overnight on-street parking ban in the North, East and West parts of the City will be called when snow clearing is required. The parking ban is referred to as the “North, East and West Temporary Overnight Parking Ban”. 

The only area of the City exempt from the North, East and West parking ban is the South Central Peninsula, where the separate and traditional on-street parking bans (also known as “snow bans”) will remain in place.  
The City will advise citizens through www.saintjohn.ca, local media, Facebook and Twitter when either ban is called.  To receive notifications direct to email, citizens can sign up to receive City News. Citizens may also call the parking ban information line at 658-4040. Should a ban be declared, the City’s website, information line and local media will all be updated by 3:45pm.
To prepare for an overnight parking ban, citizens who rely on on-street parking in the North, East and West parts of the City are encouraged to make alternate off-street parking arrangements.
Citizens have a responsibility to secure off-street parking and to seek information on when these parking bans are declared.  The City thanks citizens for their cooperation as efforts are made to enhance the snow clearing service.
