 COVID-19 Response for Saskatoon Residents

On March 19, 2020, the City decided to close public access to City Hall and all City buildings, including fire stations, leisure facilities, attractions and Saskatoon Public Library locations. While we are closed to the public, our business operations continue to ensure core services for our residents as much as possible. Public transit currently remains operational.


COVID - 19 Response: Temporary Changes to Pay Parking Requirements

Effective immediately payment is no longer required in any City of Saskatoon designated pay parking zones. In addition, motorists will not be required to adhere to posted time limits in these zones. 

Important information:

  • Parking lots operated by 3rd party private operators are not exempted from pay parking unless otherwise indicated at the lot.
  • FlexParking stations and the Way to Park app will be reprogrammed to indicate that parking is "free" - messaging will be updated when services are back to normal. The City will not be able to reimburse payment to people who pay for parking during this time.

Enforcement will continue for all other parking restrictions, such as:

  • No Stopping signs
  • No Parking signs
  • Detour and  Reserve Parking signs
  • Accessible Parking signs
  • No parking in alleys unless active loading/unloading is taking place.

COVID - 19 Response: Residential Parking Program Zone Restrictions Suspended Immediately

Effective immediately parking restrictions for the Residential Parking Program zones are suspended until further notice.  In addition, overtime parking on all residential streets will no longer be enforced, to encourage residents to stay home and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Public safety-related parking restrictions remain in effect to maintain emergency access and traffic flow including:

  • No Stopping signs
  • No Parking signs
  • Accessible Parking signs
  • Fire Hydrants   (maintain 1 metre from the centre of a fire hydrant)
  • No parking within 10 metres of an intersection
  • No parking in alleys unless active loading/unloading is taking place.
