The Enforcement Section operates out of the City of Brampton Enforcement and By-Law Services Division, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Currently, Enforcement addresses approximately 8,000 calls a year from the public and, with Brampton's ever-increasing population, this number is expected to climb.
In addition to responding to requests from the public, Enforcement Officers enforce the City’s Traffic and Parking By-law which, amongst other things, stipulates that a vehicle may NOT be parked on the street:
- between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.; and
- for more than three (3) hours at a time
unless Consideration is given by the City to violate these offences. Parking by-law signs (see example below) are posted on every roadway entering the City of Brampton. These bylaws are City-wide, unless posted otherwise, and identify the City of Brampton parking rules.
The City of Brampton does not currently offer permit parking on City streets, however, does give parking Considerations to allow residents to park on the street up to 14 days per calendar year per license plate for the above two violations only. Considerations for any other parking violations will not be given. It is important to note that a Parking Consideration will not prevent you from getting a ticket if your parked vehicle impedes snow clearing or road maintenance operations.
To obtain a Parking Consideration, see the Permission To Park On Street section of the website.
