Purchasing a marina parking pass or digital permit: Marina parking passes and digital permits are available exclusively to Marina slip renters for $100+ HST annually. Slip renters can purchase a pass (hangtag) at the Barrie Marina office, or purchase a digital permit through the HotSpot parking app/website. ​Slip renters will have received an email from HotSpot with the subject: You have been added as a HotSpot Moderated Permit User, at the beginning of each marina season (or if a new renter, when you registered at the Marina) that will include instructions on purchasing the digital parking permit. Contact​ if you need this email re-sent​. 

The benefits of a digital permit include: 
  • Convenience: there is no need to come to the Barrie Marina Office;
