Food for Fines returns this December for its 12th year!
In the spirit of contributing to those citizens who are less fortunate, and in demonstration of holiday season goodwill and community spirit, the Food for Fines program gives the option of donating cash or food of equal value to a parking ticket.
Expired parking meter and 2-hour zone ticket fines received between December 1 and 8 are eligible. Donations will be accepted until December 12 at City Hall.
If donating food, please bring non-perishable food items such as canned foods and dried goods. Food items contributed must be of the same or higher value than the parking ticket.
In 2017, the City raised $2,100 in Food Bank donations and $5,320 in cash donations to Kaushee’s Place, for a total amount of $7,420.

Main Street Parkade
The City parking lot at the end of Main Street, next to the Whitehorse United Church, has a new pay station, which is live 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.
