The Township of Georgian Bay's Parking By-law (2018-06) outlines parking regulations, restrictions and no parking areas.

Resident parking pass

Parking passes are required! Parking Permits are available for residents in Georgian Bay. 

Georgian Bay property owners and tenants are required to have a parking pass. Parking passes are available for pick up at the Township Administration building as well as the Georgian Bay Public Libraries during office hours. If you are unable to pick up during those times please contact the office with your information and one will be mailed out to you. Contact us by email at or call 705-538-2337.

Each parking pass is valid for two licence plate numbers within the same residence. Please provide proof of residency/tenancy (e.g. tax bill, driver's licence, rental agreement) when you call or email the office. Parking passes are for the Port Severn Park and South Gibson Lake Road.

By-law 2017-66 has parking rates for Port Severn Park.

Winter parking

The Township prohibits parking within 3.05 metres (10 feet) of the edge of any gravel, surface treatment or asphalt road within Georgian Bay between November 15 and April 1.

Pay your parking ticket

There are three ways to pay for your parking ticket:

  1. By mailing a cheque to the municipal office
  2. Online direct credit card payment 
  3. In person at the municipal office using cash, debit, or cheque
  4. E-transfer 
  • ETransfers can be sent to  
    • A security question is required for staff to accept payment. A second email with the security answer must be sent to
    • In the email with the security answer please ensure you include the details of what you are paying for including all reference numbers  
    • A good example for parking ticket would be:  
    • Question: What is my Parking ticket number? Answer: 1234 (the four digit parking ticket number is located at the top right corner of the ticket in red font) 

If you do not send an email with the parking ticket number attach the staff will not be able to connect your payment to the parking ticket that was issued to you. Thus, is will remain unpaid and further fees may be incurred. Please be sure you received the notification that the payment was accepted by the Township.  

Follow the instructions on the back of your ticket if you'd like to contest a fine.
