Parking Changes Coming to Mississauga for Civic Holiday Monday


Although civic holidays aren’t quite as well-known (or understood) as major holidays such as Christmas, New Year’s Day and Canada Day, they offer a little reprieve from the five-day work week (something that’s extra welcome in the summer).

Do you ever really need an excuse to have a Monday BBQ?

We didn’t think so.

But regardless of whether or not you’re celebrating anything in particular on Monday, Aug. 6 (for those who are unaware, the optional Civic Holiday—which is celebrated on the first Monday of August—honours John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant Governor of Ontario), there’s a good chance you’re having people over and/or attending a party of some sort.

If so, you might be happy to be reminded that parking is extended.

The usual parking limit will not be in effect on Monday, so you can park on the street for longer without any worry whatsoever.

In fact, parking beyond the five-hour limit is allowed for the following statutory holidays:

  • New Year’s Day

  • Family Day

  • Good Friday

  • Easter Sunday

  • Victoria Day

  • Canada Day

  • Civic Holiday

  • Labour Day

  • Thanksgiving Day

  • Christmas Day

  • Boxing Day

Residents should note that on street parking is prohibited year-round (including statutory holidays) between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Enjoy your long weekend!
