The City of Toronto issues parking tickets on statutory holidays.

All parking signs should be followed, as posted (ie. if a sign says "No Parking between 4-6 pm Mon-Fri" and there is no posted exception, there is no parking 4-6 pm Mon-Fri, even if Monday is a holiday).

Posted exceptions (i.e. no parking except weekends and holidays) "holidays" refers to statutory holidays only.
(New Year's Day, Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, Boxing Day)

Parking Authority - Parking Meters and Pay & Display machines
Payment for parking is required 365 days a year. In most off street parking facilities regular rates apply on holidays. There are a few Toronto Parking Authority Parking Facilities that have holiday Monday rates, which are posted on the rate signs in the parking facility.

Note: there is no exemption from the requirement to pay for on-street machines and meters on statutory holidays, however Toronto Police have the discretion to enforce the payment requirement. This is a decision made by the Parking Enforcement Unit of Toronto Police Services and they communicate their intentions through their public communications office. Please check with the Toronto Police Service Parking Enforcement Unit, to determine if the payment requirement is being enforced on a holiday.
