Receiving a Parking Violation Notice in Toronto

A Parking Violation Notice is a ticket issued by a private firm after determining you've failed to honour your end for parking on private land. When you park on private land such as a supermarket car park, you enter into a contract with the owner that details how long your car will be on the land.

There are usually clear signs informing you that you are entering private land. These signs also show you the parking rules and charges for using the car park. The signs help you decide whether using the car park is beneficial or not.

Most landowners use private parking firms to keep track of all the vehicles on their land. Failure to adhere to the parking rules may see you getting issued a Parking Violation Notice. A firm can issue you a PVN if you:

  1. Didn't pay the car park fee
  2. Stayed for a longer period than you paid for
  3. Stayed longer than the maximum time
  4. Parked where you shouldn't have

Before issuing a an operator will allow you a 10-minute grace period to allow you to leave the car park.
