The City of St. Catharines is committed to providing high quality and available parking to enhance the quality of life for our residents and visitors. Tickets may be given to owners or operators of motor vehicles who fail to obey parking by-laws.
Parking by-law enforcement officers are contracted out. Payments for parking violations are handled by the Financial Management Services department located on the second floor of City Hall between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
