  • Accessible Parking Permits
  • Parking Meters
  • Parking Permits
  • Taxi Stands
  • Loading Zones
  • Bus Zones
  • Large or Heavy Vehicles
  • Removal of Vehicles from Public Property
  • Special Event Road Closures (Special Event Road Closures Bylaw)

Payment for traffic violation tickets issued under the Traffic Bylaw may be made by Visa or Mastercard over the phone.  Please call City Hall at 667-6401 and a Customer Service Representative will assist you.

Parking Meter Violations for Non-Yukon License Plates 

Visitors are reminded that they can obtain a FREE 3 day Parking Pass from the Yukon Visitor Information Centre. This allows visitors to park at parking meters for free.

A visit to the Information Centre will also allow visitors to easily find, in one place, the many things that Whitehorse and the Yukon have to offer. Trained staff are on duty to help answer a variety of questions. 

Vehicles bearing Non-Yukon license plates are subject to the same parking regulations as Yukon residents pursuant to the City of Whitehorse Traffic Bylaw.

Parking Meter and Traffic enforcement within the Central Business District provides Yukon residents and visitors consistent opportunities to park on city streets as a result of continual turnover of parking availability for incoming motorists. 

The Traffic Bylaw is administered and enforced by the Bylaw Services Department.

If you have any questions concerning the Traffic Bylaw please contact Bylaw Services at (867) 668-8317.


Food For Fines - 10 Years Strong in 2016! 

The Food for Fines program gives the option of donating cash or food of equal value to a parking ticket. Parking meter ticket fines received between December 3 and 10 were eligible. Donations were accepted until December 13, 2016.

In 2016 we raised $2,040 in food donations and $3,505 in cash donations. The total amount raised was $5,545. 

All donations went directly to the Whitehorse Food Bank and Kaushee’s Place, providing food and shelter to those in need.

Thanks to all who participated!
