March 17 - 2 p.m.
S'No Parking has been lifted.
The City of St. Catharines is committed to keeping roads and sidewalks clear for motorists, pedestrians, emergency vehicles, publc transit, and other users throughout the winter season, and to do so as efficiently as possible.
In 2015, the City introduced its S'No Parking program - a call to residents not to park their vehicles on the street during and immediately following a significant snow event. The City will declare a temporary S'No Parking to be in effect when Environment Canada forecasts a minimum of 10 cm of snowfall within the next 24 hours.
On-going monitoring of weather conditions and snow clearing operations will determine how long S'No Parking stays in effect and residents should plan for off-street parking for at least 72 hours.
It's easy to find out when the City has declared S'No Parking is in effect.
There are no fines, tickets or other penalties associated with S'No Parking. However, parking fines may be issued in some cases under the City's Parking By-law.

An open road makes it easier for our snow plows to keep city streets clean. Help our crews plow faster by following these parking rules.
By keeping cars off the road, our crews will be able to work faster and plow more of the road. Please refrain from parking on the street and make all reasonable effort to remove parked vehicles from the street before, during and after a storm event.
Your best option is to park your vehicle in one of our parking garages. They're well lit and covered, meaning your vehicle will be safe and removed from the elements.
Parking at metered spaces is not permitted between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m.
