There may be limited parking availability within the Parkade and immediate area. Please allow yourself extra time to ensure you are on time for appointments. If it is possible and convenient patients can be dropped at the Women's/Adult entrance before parking the car.


Our multilevel public parkade, located on University Avenue just east of the IWK, is for patient, family, and visitor use. 

Your entry ticket

When you enter the parkade you'll receive an entry ticket. Take this ticket with you when you enter the IWK, do not leave it on your dash. When your IWK visit is finished, use your entry ticket to pay for parking at either an automated pay station, or at the exit gate.

Paying for parking

Using the automated parking pay stations located in the IWK Gallery, near both entrances to the parkade, you can pay for parking with cash, debit, or credit card.

You can also pay at the exit gates in the parkade using your chip-enabled credit or debit card. Simply insert your ticket then tap your credit or debit card to pay.
