Climate Emergency Parking Program

About 30% of Vancouver's street space is dedicated to parking.

Support cleaner air and climate action

In November 2020, Vancouver City Council directed staff to explore a citywide residential parking program with a pollution charge as part of the Climate Emergency Action Plan.

The Climate Emergency Parking Program would:

  • Encourage people to purchase cleaner vehicles
  • Reduce air and carbon pollution
  • Fund climate emergency actions

It would also allow the City to respond more effectively to localized parking issues as Vancouver grows.

  • Learn more about the draft directions and share your feedback by July 5, 2021.

    Your input will inform final recommendations to Council later this year. If approved, the program would launch in 2022.
