​Traffic Safety

Ensuring our students get to school safely is everyone’s responsibility. Please be mindful of crosswalks, parking rules and speed limits when you are near our schools, especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times.​ ​​​​

Parking & Drop-Off

Student Parking (Grades 11 & 12 students only)

There is a LIMITED AMOUNT OF STUDENT PARKING available at Western Canada.  Students are not guaranteed a parking space/stall at the school. 

Accessing the Student Parking Lot

The student parking lot is accessed at the southeast corner of the school, located directly behind the main gymnasium.  All other gated parking lots around the school are reserved for staff. 

Parking Passes

Student parking passes are available in the main office for Grades 11 and 12 students.

Students must ensure that a current school- year parking tag is visible at all times when using the student parking.

Any vehicle parked in the student parking lot not displaying a valid pass is subject to being ticketed and towed.

Students who forget their parking tag will not be permitted to park in the lot, and the Main Office will not issue a temporary day pass or note. 

Students who drive in a reckless manner on school property will have their parking privileges revoked.

** Please be aware that a student parking tag does not guarantee a parking spot.  The number of student parking spots is limited and are on a first come - first served basis.\

Parking Violations

Student vehicles parked in any of the following locations during the school day (7 am – 4 pm) will be ticketed and towed from the school property:

  • Any stalls marked ‘reserved’ for school and CBE staff
  • Any of the gated (staff-reserved) parking lots around the school
  • Any handicap stalls without a valid handicap sticker
  • Any fire lanes clearly marked “No Parking”

Students are requested not to congregate in vehicles or in the parking lot during class times.
