Parking at our sites

Ample parking is available at our sites at a nominal cost for all staff, visitors and families. Since ErinoakKids owns these facilities, a nominal fee is required to allow for the safe operation, proper maintenance and upkeep of our parking areas.

While we recognize this is a shift from previous practices, we are committed to minimizing the financial impact on client families. Therefore, ErinoakKids offers a number of parking options, aligned with the provincial government’s mandated guidelines for Ontario hospitals. These guidelines ensure we provide equitable pricing for all families, with options to best suit your needs and your child’s treatment schedule. These options include a free drop-off area, short term (hourly) parking, and affordable long-term parking, including a multi-visit pass for families visiting regularly and accessing more than one of our locations. The chart below provides an overview of our parking options and associated fees.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are parking rates at all three sites the same?
Yes, all three sites will have the same parking fee structure.
 
2. Can I use the same multi-visit pass or monthly pass at all three sites?
Yes, these passes can be used at any of our sites.
 
3. What are the parking options?
Families and staff can pay a posted rate or purchase a discounted multi-visit (HPASS) or monthly pass (see above). If you are visiting our sites for less than 20 minutes and park in the gated area, you will not have to pay to park.
 
4. How will families/visitors pay for parking?
There are a few options.
 
If you are paying the posted rate, bring your parking ticket with you and pay at the parking machine before you leave.
 
If you are buying a discounted multi-visit or monthly pass (for clients and staff only), you can select this option at the parking machine inside the front door. The machine will print a receipt, which you can take to the parking attendant. The attendant will verify that you are an ErinoakKids client and will give you the pass that you purchased. We realize that this process does take a bit longer, but we want to be sure only ErinoakKids clients are receiving the discounted rate. Please note that on your first visit, you will have to bring your parking ticket with you and pay the posted rate.

10. Why is there paid parking at the new sites, but not at the old sites?
