The Parking Permit Program issues permits to residents across the NWT. The permit is issued to the person, not the vehicle. It allows the registered user to park any car they are using in specially identified parking spots. NWT parking permits may be used in any Province or Territory across Canada.
In order to receive a parking permit, the individual must complete a Parking Permit Application form with their Doctor or Nurse Practitioner, and return it to the Council office. The individual must also sign a form acknowledging that they have received, read, and understood the rules governing the use of the parking placard.
Permanent Permits all expire April 30th of even years (2014, 2016…). Renewal forms are sent to all holders in the mail at the start of March.
Temporary Placard expiry dates are determined by the Health Care Professional. If a temporary placard holder still needs the placard after expiry they must submit a new application.
Organizations may apply for placards if they are transporting clients with disabilities regularly.
Please contact our office for more information.
