Downtown Tofino Residents

If you live in the downtown core, you must display a decal on your vehicle, which grants you access to parking on your street. Each household receives one free decal, with a second decal costing $150. Decals must be collected at the Municipal Hall with proof of address and ID before May 1 to avoid penalties.

Residents of Ucluelet, Port Alberni, and Alberni Clayoquot Regional District

Receive Downtown Pay Parking by purchasing an annual Beach Pay Parking permit for $60.


There are three ways to pay per hour: using coins at a physical meter, using the Honk Mobile app, or PayByPhone by calling 1-888-680-7275.

Note—The Municipal Hall parking lots are not part of the Downtown Pay Parking program. These lots are designed for longer-term parking.
