Pay parking restrictions are strictly enforced 7 days a week. 

CMHC’s legal authority to claim the amount listed on the Notice of Violation or to tow an improperly parked vehicle arises from the Law of Trespass, or in certain circumstances under the Law of Contract or the Government Property Traffic Act. If the required payment is not made within the stated time limit, legal action may be taken to recover the amount owing, together with costs incurred.
