and the Zoning By-law (in effect)
The City of Mississauga requires the issuance of a Zoning Certificate of Occupancy
authorizing the sale or distribution of motor vehicles, prior to advising the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council (OMVIC) that your use is permitted from your business premises. This is a separate process and permit that must be completed prior to any further correspondence being provided for your OMVIC license.
You must write a letter to the City of Mississauga requesting a Zoning letter which is required by OMVIC prior to the issuance of their dealer’s license. See our ZONING LETTER
web page for information on what is to be included in your correspondence to the City of Mississauga when requesting a clearance letter for your Motor Vehicle Dealers License.
In place of a letter, a City of Mississauga Public Garage - Type B License must be presented to the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council (OMVIC) when applying for a Motor Vehicle Dealers License. A Zoning Certificate of Occupancy alone is not sufficient and a Zoning Letter will not be provided for RETAIL SALES. NOTE: a Public Garage - Type B License will not be issued by the City unless a Zoning Certificate of Occupancy has been issued, authorizing the retail sale of motor vehicles from your business location.
