Food for Fines - back for a 13th year in 2019!
The Food for Fines program gives the option of donating cash or food of equal value to a parking ticket. Parking meter ticket and 2-hour zone fines received between November 30 and December 7 will be eligible for the program, and charity donations should be made to City Hall as payment by December 11.
All donations will go directly to the Whitehorse Food Bank and Kaushee’s Place. Donated food items must be non-perishable, which includes canned foods such as beans, fruit, vegetables and fish, and dried goods such as pasta, cereal and soup.
In 2018, the City raised just over $1,000 in food donations and $2,100 in cash donations, for a total amount of $3,110.
Since 2006, the City has raised over $59,000 in cash and food donations for this important cause!

Main Street Parkade
The City parking lot at the end of Main Street, next to the Whitehorse United Church, has a new pay station, as of June 2018.
Customers are able to pay in new and different ways. Just follow these easy steps:
- Select an empty spot and park your car
- Go to the pay machine and follow the directions on the screen.
- Select the length of your stay. Parking costs 50 ¢ per hour.
- You can use coins (any denomination) or a credit card (Visa or Mastercard).
- Collect your receipt and display it face up on your dashboard.
Payment is only required from 9 am to 6 pm, Monday to Friday – however, the new pay station accepts payment in advance of those hours, from 7:30 am onwards.
For example, a customer can pay for two hours of parking if they enter the parkade between 7:30 - 9 am and their receipt will cover their parking fees from 9 am to 11 am, as long as it is duly displayed on their vehicle’s dashboard.
The parking lot at the end of Main Street, next to the Whitehorse United Church, remains available for free parking Monday to Friday between 6 pm and 9 am as well as all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
Originally adopted in 1982, the Traffic Bylaw regulates traffic and vehicle parking. It has been amended and updated many times since it was adopted. The most recent amendment was approved by Council on September 23, 2013.

Parking Meter Violations for Non-Yukon License Plates
Visitors are reminded that they can obtain a FREE 3 day Parking Pass from the Yukon Visitor Information Centre. This allows visitors to park at parking meters for free.
A visit to the Information Centre will also allow visitors to easily find, in one place, the many things that Whitehorse and the Yukon have to offer. Trained staff are on duty to help answer a variety of questions.
Vehicles bearing Non-Yukon license plates are subject to the same parking regulations as Yukon residents pursuant to the City of Whitehorse Traffic Bylaw.
Parking Meter and Traffic enforcement within the Central Business District provides Yukon residents and visitors consistent opportunities to park on city streets as a result of continual turnover of parking availability for incoming motorists.
The Traffic Bylaw is administered and enforced by the Bylaw Services Department.
If you have any questions concerning the Traffic Bylaw please contact Bylaw Services at (867) 668-8317.
If an offence is observed please contact the trouble line at 667-2111 or email email@example.com
