The City of Cornwall no longer issues physical permits to be placed in the vehicle window. All permit privileges are now virtually tied to the vehicle(s) of the permit owner. Permits are registered electronically by plate numbers and it is no longer necessary to display a permit in your vehicle.

Parking permits are associated with the plate numbers and not transferable from person to person.  However, they can be used for up to 3 different plates for multiple cars owned by the same permit holder if the plates are registered at the time of permit purchase. 

The first time you purchase a permit, you will be asked to create an account with a password. Once you have an account you will be able to self-serve to update your account information.

Permits can be purchased for different time lengths (for example 30 days, 90 days, seasonal (boat launch only).
