In the City of Cornwall, failure to comply with parking rules can lead to a fine.

Paying a parking ticket

Parking tickets can be paid in-person at the Building and By-Law Enforcement Department office on the second floor of the Cornwall Civic Complex (100 Water Street East) during regular business hours.

For added convenience, there are three yellow deposit boxes in the City where residents can deposit their parking ticket payments. The boxes are located at the Cornwall Community Police Service headquarter station (340 Pitt Street), the Civic Complex (west side of front entrance, at the bottom of the stairs) and in front of the parking lot at 342 Montreal Road.

Plate Denial

Provincial legislation allows municipalities to collect unpaid parking infractions through the Ministry of Transportation by requesting plate denial. The City of Cornwall is connected to such system and your license plate may not be issued by the Ministry of Transportation if there are outstanding fines. Also, at such time, an additional $25.00 is levied to each outstanding ticket in addition to already imposed fees and fines.

To enquire about the status of your unpaid parking tickets or to obtain general information regarding outstanding fines, please contact the Building and By-law Department at (613) 930-2787 ext. 2225.
