These permits are valid only for parking lot R6. LinR collects licence plate numbers during registration, and submits them to Parking Services. The licence plate numbers function as the permit credential, replacing paper permits

Are there designated parking spots for persons with disabilities near the LinR classroom?
Yes. There are a few parking spots designated for persons with disabilities in the semi-circular drop-off zone outside the tunnel entrance near the Leeds House building and in P17, immediately next to the Residence Commons building. A LinR parking permit is required for these spaces, as well as your valid Accessible Parking Permit (APP).

I received a parking ticket in error, how can I resolve this?
Please call the LinR office directly at 613-520-3699. We would be happy to advocate on your behalf with Parking Services.
