I own a lot that fronts onto two streets. Can I change the address from one street to the other?
Under certain circumstances it is possible to change an address from one street to another.
If the lot is vacant, a new address can be issued for a new building provided there is a full entrance and exit onto that street. (A right-turn-in and right-turn-out does not qualify as a full entrance and exit.) The location of the front door of the new building will also be considered in assigning the new address.
If there is an existing building on the lot, any change will depend upon the location of the front door and the main vehicular access to the property. Each situation will be judged on its own merits after consultation with the City of Mississauga’s Fire and Emergency Services.
Changing the street on which a building is addressed may result in a change of Postal Code. For all Postal Code questions please consult Canada Post.
