Disabled Person Designated Parking

The City of Kenora recognizes the need for accessible parking spaces and there are many designated for disabled persons within the City of Kenora and private property. A Disabled Person Parking Permit must be clearly displayed on or in the vehicle using that space to avoid a parking ticket.   Fines are very high to discourage misuse of parking in a disabled zone.

Veteran’s Plate Parking

The City of Kenora recognizes the sacrifice and commitment  of our Veterans’ and has established a special regulation to exempt municipal  parking fees for a vehicle displaying an Ontario Veteran’s licence plate.  Veterans who have an Ontario issued Veterans licence plate may park at any meter (except a disabled meter unless a permit holder) free of charge.

Should you find a parking ticket has been issued to you, payments may be submitted on-line, in person at City Hall, or mailed to the address on the ticket.   For other traffic ticket information and payments, contact the Provincial Offences Department.
