Parking tickets in Waterloo Region

Parking tickets are issued when a by-law enforcement officer finds your vehicle parked or stopped in a zone where parking or stopping is not allowed. The traffic and parking by-laws for the cities and townships establish the parking restrictions on their respective roads. The Region of Waterloo has a similar by-law for parking on Regional roads. The back of your ticket shows your options for paying your ticket or for appealing it.

Refer to the Provincial Offences Court to appeal your ticket.

For information on paying tickets within the cities of Cambridge, Kitchener or Waterloo, visit their respective websites:
