The City of Winnipeg is developing the Winnipeg Parking Strategy. The strategy will outline the City’s five-year vision for on-street parking, off-street parking, and broader curbside management, and will create the framework for the development of progressive parking policies and services to facilitate access for motorists while supporting the needs of residents, local businesses, hospitals, and other key stakeholders.

The Winnipeg Parking Authority (WPA) manages City-owned public parking resources. Since its inception in 2005, the WPA has continued to modernize parking and curbside management with progressive policies and services, and through the adoption of new technologies.

The Winnipeg Parking Authority (WPA) manages City-owned public parking resources. Since its inception in 2005, the WPA has continued to modernize parking and curbside management with progressive policies and services, and through the adoption of new technologies.

As we work towards developing a new five-year comprehensive parking strategy, we want to understand the parking challenges facing residents, visitors, and businesses who rely on effective parking and curbside management.

As part of the strategy development, we will review our services, policies, and mechanisms with the goal of improving parking convenience and accessibility. We will also examine how best to create parking availability in areas of high parking demand, explore curbside parking management strategies, and undertake a comprehensive review of pricing models.

The Winnipeg Parking Strategy will take into consideration other planning documents and policies, such as OurWinnipeg, Winnipeg’s Climate Action Plan, and the Transportation Master Plan.

    Thank you to all those who participated in the Winnipeg Parking Strategy public engagement process.

    We heard from you between January 15 and February 19, 2021.

    You told us about your experiences with parking and gave feedback on parking concepts through an online survey (over 1,900 participants), an online forum (150 posts), and virtual events, including meetings with business representatives (55 attendees). We also had over 5,000 visitors to this webpage.

    All of the feedback received will be compiled and considered in revising the Winnipeg Parking Strategy, which will then be recommended for Council’s consideration.
