Proposed Mississauga Official Plan
Amendment and Zoning By-law
Respecting Crematoriums
The Council of the Corporation of the City of Mississauga directed that an examination of existing municipal land use regulations for crematoriums be undertaken in light of the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002, scheduled to come into effect on July 1, 2012.

The new Provincial legislation will among other things, allow the Province to issue licences to operate a crematorium outside of a cemetery which is currently not permitted.

The Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002, does not contain regulations that would address appropriate locations and criteria for crematoriums outside of cemeteries. City staff have examined the new Act as well as existing municipal regulations and propose draft official plan and zoning amendments which conform with the intent of the new Provincial legislation and at the same time, attempt to minimize any potential land use conflicts between crematoriums and sensitive land uses.

On March 14, 2012 Mississauga's Planning and Development Committee held a public meeting on the proposed amendments.
