Residents can begin putting up their temporary car shelters for the winter starting October 15.

The installation of this type of shelter must abide by certain rules, i.e.:

• be located at least two meters from the curb or sidewalk;
• be made of polyethylene or canvas;
• be erected over a parking space or access path to a parking lot.

No permit is required for the installation of a temporary shelter. Note that these must be dismantled April 15 at the latest.
