Canmore is recognized as one of Alberta’s most beautiful places to shop, hike eat and drink – so really, it was only a matter of time until those visiting would have to pay to stay.
As announced on their website, the stunning mountain town will start charging people to park on their streets as the sunny season heats up and tourists become more common than not.
The Canmore paid parking project will remain in effect seven days per week between 8 am and 8 pm once it kicks off in late June and will differ in price depending on the season.
Ticket prices for upcoming Oilers vs. Flames games are already off the charts
Reminder: Fort Edmonton Park opens for the season this weekend
- Peak season rates (May 15th to October 14th): $3/ per hour
- Low season rates (October 15th – May 14th): $2/ per hour
If however, you’re a Canmore resident, monthly parking passes will be available here and will allow you to park all day in the green lots pictured on the map above.
Alternatively, you can also apply for a Canmore Resident Parking Permit and get up to 3 hours free in all paid zones per day plus access to all red zone parking which are spaces exclusively reserved for those who live in the area.

It’s sure going to be an interesting season, friends. Enjoy!
