Signage and parking
To facilitate the flow of traffic and street maintenance, the Borough has a
parking policy that takes into account both the zoning and traffic volume of
various districts. Parking restrictions vary from one district to another, and
it is therefore important to check the signs before parking.
Parking violations are subject to fines, and the vehicle may be towed away.
The owner of any vehicle towed to a nearby street must pay the towing
At no time is parking authorized in alleys. In winter, signs prohibiting
parking between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m., or between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. may be
temporarily installed a few hours before snow removal operations begin.
Accordingly, citizens must be vigilant in order to ensure that their vehicle
does not disrupt different road operations.
It is forbidden to park or store a trailer or boat outdoors, or to repair
a vehicle outdoors.
Reserved street parking for residents
Since fall 2010, a program aimed at facilitating access to
parking spaces on streets in districts located near heavy traffic areas (métro
stations, academic institutions, commercial streets, etc.) through the issuance
of stickers to residents is in effect in Saint-Laurent.
The program was introduced in response to the needs expressed by
residents in the Vieux-Saint-Laurent Neighbourhood in order to ensure that they
have access to vacant parking spaces near their homes. Furthermore, this project
is in line with the Local Transportation Plan for the Borough of Saint-Laurent,
which strives to maintain the quality of life for residents by ensuring that the
use of public streets is shared equitably.
Benefits of the program

are reserved during specific times for the exclusive use of residents
