Parking Your Recreational Vehicles (RVs)

​Camping is a popular activity and many residents have recreational vehicles (RVs) – including trailers and tent trailers – to support this pastime. If you own an RV, it's important to know what's permitted when it comes to parking.


Driveway or Backyard of a Personal Residence

RVs can be parked on the driveway or in the backyard of your personal residence, if space allows. However, you can't park your RV in such a way that any portion of the vehicle is overhanging or encroaching upon a sidewalk, curb or road.

On the Street

RVs can be parked on the street for certain periods of time, but only in the area of the street immediately adjoining your place of residence. The following bylaws must be followed:

  1. You can park your RV directly in front of your home or street immediately adjoining your home for up to 48 hours.
  2. You can park your RV in an alley or lane immediately adjoining your home to load and unload only.
  3. After 48 hours, the RV must be off-street for at least 36 consecutive hours before it can be parked in the same location again.

You can also download the completeTraffic Bylaw for more information.
