Toronto Front Pad Parking

I have been getting a lot of questions about the City of Toronto rules regarding front pad parking.

Here are a few things to help…

People buying a home with a front pad parking space need to re-apply to the city for a new license. The existing license belongs to the previous owner. It is not a right that is attached to the property. Thus we say it “does not run with the land”.

Adding a new front pad parking space requires an application to the City of Toronto and their approval. The rules are complex for this, see the bylaw link below.

Existing licenses need to be renewed regularly to be permitted to kee the parking pad.

Thanks for providing this update about street parking in Toronto. I am going to be applying to the city of Toronto for a street permit shortly. This was just what I needed to know.
