Hospital parking lots will once again start charging a fee for staff, patients, and visitors. 

The Ottawa Hospital, CHEO, and the Montfort Hospital suspended paid parking in March due to clinic closures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

All three hospitals have statements posted on their website. The Ottawa Hospital will implement regular parking fees on Canada Day, while CHEO and parking remains free at Montfort until July 2; the hospital will start charging on July 3.  

The statement from the Ottawa Hospital said with more services opening, they expect to see a larger number of patients, as well as staff returning to work.
