Many Albertans and visitors from outside of Alberta have Parking Placards for Persons with Disabilities. In Alberta, these placards are managed by Service Alberta, and are generally distributed to individuals who are unable to walk unassisted for more than 50 metres, and who need larger stalls to load and unload devices such as walkers and wheelchairs with unobstructed access to the curb.

Citizens displaying a valid accessible parking placard are provided with 2 hours of free courtesy parking at all on-street EPark zones.

The City of Edmonton has an important role to play in ensuring that drivers with Parking Placards for Persons with Disabilities have access and proximity to the services they need.
