Parking reimbursements

To ensure parking fees do not create a barrier to access for patients and visitors, parking exemptions will be available to people who meet certain criteria, including:

  • patients receiving dialysis treatment,
  • patients undergoing cancer treatment in acute-care,
  • parents or guardians of children staying in the hospital overnight, or
  • patients experiencing financial hardships.

Eligible patients and visitors are asked to pay for parking upfront when arriving at the hospital or facility and will be reimbursed after their appointment, either in person by visiting the cashier's office or by going online.

Each reimbursement claim must have a receipt in order to be qualified and approved for reimbursement. Each receipt must be submitted within 6 months of the initial parking date. Submissions will be regularly audited.
