    Accessible parking permit

    In all of its paid parking lots, the NCC offers four hours of free parking to anyone whose vehicle displays an accessible parking permit.

    • To park in a lot that does not have an entrance gate, make sure that your accessible parking permit is clearly visible. Nothing else is required for our parking lot attendants to allow you to park in the lot.
    • To park in a lot with an entrance gate, use the intercom to speak to the attendant, who will allow your vehicle to enter the lot. The same procedure should be followed when leaving the lot. You must ensure that you are able to show your accessible parking permit to the camera installed at the exit and entrance gates..
    • Persons with reduced mobility who are not able to use the intercom at the gates can obtain a transponder at the Gatineau Park Visitor Centre. A $50 deposit is required.
