To obtain a municipal address for a new building you must follow three steps:
First, contact the City of Mississauga's Geospatial Solutions section at (905) 615-3200 ext. 5158. You may be requested to provide a simple site plan showing the relationship between the main entrance of the new building and the street. (Note that addresses are assigned in such a way as to speed emergency response to a building.) A new civic address will be reserved for you and you will receive a confirmation letter.
Second, find the current fee for a new municipal address, by consulting www.mississauga.ca/portal/cityhall/bylaws and looking under "Fees and Charges: General Fees" for New Municipal Addresses. Current fees are for single detached units. A sliding scale is applied for condominium, industrial and commercial applications. Please note that the HST must be added to these fees.
Third, payment options:
- Mail a Certified Cheque (payable to The City of Mississauga) along with your request and a copy of the confirmation letter to the Supervisor of Data Management at the address below
- Bring your confirmation letter to Transportation and Works Customer Service Counter. Methods of payment: cash, certified cheque (payable to The City of Mississauga), debit or credit card. Please note that the Counter will not accept cheques that are not certified.
