Avoid Parking Tickets by purchasing your pass on time!

Once you have successfully paid for your Parking Permit, you will receive it by Canada Post at the address you provided. Be sure to enter your complete address including - Your Full Name - Street Address (ex: 100 Portsmouth Avenue) - Apartment or Suite number (if applicable) - City - Province - Postal Code (ex. K7L 5A6)

Please be aware that if you do not provide your complete and current address, your Parking Permit may not be delivered successfully!

Sometimes Canada Post is slow, but more often it is because of an error with the address you provided.

Please allow up to 10 business days for your Permit to arrive. If you still haven’t received it after the allotted time, please email parking@sl.on.ca for assistance.

Please note that if you have purchased a valid Parking Permit and you receive a Parking Ticket while waiting for it to arrive, follow the appeal process and be sure to mention this in your adjudication.

To check the expiry date of your Parking Permit, login to https://slc.aimsparking.com. In the ‘Permits’ section, you will be able to see the permits that you have purchased and the corresponding expiry date. You will also receive an email notification that lets you know when your pass will expire.

For Semester Permits, the expiry date usually coincides with the end of the academic semester, and you will be expected to pay for parking after that date.

Annual Permits are valid from the time of purchase until August 31st of the academic year. If you purchased during the current academic year, you will be required to purchase a new Permit when the new academic year starts in September.

A valid appeal can be based only on the contention that a parking violation was issued contrary to St. Lawrence College’s Parking Regulations. Those that do not comply with these requirements will be automatically denied, and the Parking Administration Office will notify the appellant. No appeal from this decision is permitted.
