The city has announced that free one-hour parking at all metered locations in Winnipeg from Monday to Friday will be ending on December 31, 2021.

Temporary 15-minute loading zones around Downtown and the Exchange District will also be ending on December 31, 2021. Winnipeg Parking Authority has offered this complimentary parking and temporary loading zones since March 28, 2020 and had previously extended the offer until December 31, 2021. However, there will no longer be any extensions and the free parking will end in the new year.

Free two-hour parking will still be available on Saturdays for on-street paid parking locations. On-street parking will also continue to be free on Sundays and Statutory Holidays.
