About NAIT  

Tickets & Violations

Protective and Parking Services maintains ongoing enforcement across all parking zones on campus, and will issue City of Edmonton bylaw tickets for vehicles parked without a valid permit or payment stub. Vehicles may also be towed at the owner’s expense.

The City of Edmonton maintains a high level of parking enforcement in residential areas around NAIT. With the Metro Line and to reduce traffic around campus, members of the NAIT community are encouraged to use public transit whenever feasible.

What counts as a violation?

Please be advised that NAIT Protective Services tickets and tows vehicles on all campuses as follows.

  • Vehicles parked illegally in:
    • reserved stalls during applicable times
    • No Parking zones
    • emergency access routes
    • within 5 metres of a crosswalk, intersection, fire hydrant or yield/stop sign
  • Vehicles parked in a way that presents a safety risk to pedestrians and other users
  • Vehicles without a valid parking permit (permit must be clearly visible either on the dashboard of your vehicle or displayed from your rearview mirror)
  • Vehicles that fail to stop and pay the daily rate at any attendant-operated kiosks

Ticket payment and appeal

NAIT Protective Services has the authority to issue City of Edmonton bylaw tickets and Province of Alberta violation tickets. The process of appeal for each ticket is very different.

City of Edmonton bylaw tickets

It is your responsibility to pay your bylaw ticket on or before the due date. Payments can be made online, by mail or in person. Call the number located on the bottom of the ticket for more information. If you wish to appeal a bylaw ticket, you must contact the City of Edmonton Bylaw Ticket Administration office.

Province of Alberta tickets

Your copy of the Province of Alberta offence ticket will be either Yellow or Pink and will have either the words "Part 2" or "Part 3" in the upper right-hand corner. Read both sides of the ticket carefully. The back provides detailed information regarding your payment or appeal options.

For more information, please see Provincial Court of Alberta's Traffic Court information page.

Limitation of liability

Any motor vehicle parked, operated or driven on campus will be solely at the risk of the owner and operator. NAIT will not be liable for any damages occasioned to any such motor vehicle, the operator, other occupants thereof or any other person. Owners and operators of motor vehicles must ensure that they abide by federal, provincial and municipal legislation.

Where stalls are rented with electrical plug-ins, NAIT will endeavour to maintain reasonable and reliable services when temperatures drop below -10°C. As NAIT is committed to energy conservation, the parking lots – as well as other mechanical systems – are subject to load-shedding and cycling. If any damage or inconvenience is occasioned to any motor vehicle being removed, towed away or impounded pursuant to these regulations, neither NAIT nor its servants or agents will be liable or responsible in any way whatsoever for the damage or inconvenience. Nothing in this paragraph will affect the liability of any independent contractor carrying out the removal, towing away or impoundment of the vehicle.
