Using Your Town Centre Monthly Permit: The monthly parking pass allows for all-day parking in the four parking lots shown in green in this map; it does not allow for all-day parking in any other area. Once you purchase this permit, you do not need to start a parking session when parking in one of these lots. If you are parking outside of one of these lots, or at Quarry Lake, you will need to start a parking session and use your three hours of time, allocated by your Canmore Resident Parking Permit.
On November 1, 2022, Council approved the implementation of a Town Centre Non-resident Employee Monthly Parking Permit option for the off-peak season only. The program is anticipated to be available in 2023.
