Demolition Control By-Law

Protecting Mississauga’s housing supply is a key component of the City’s Housing Strategy. The Demolition Control By-Law allows the City to regulate the demolition of residential buildings by:

  • Preventing the demolition of residential properties before plans to redevelop are in place


  • Requiring reconstruction within a defined period of time

Who does this new by-law affect?

The new Demolition Control By-Law affects all residential properties. A Demolition Control Permit (under S. 33 Planning Act) will now be required for the demolition of any dwelling unit. Demolition Permits (under S. 8 Ontario Building Code) are still required for all buildings in Mississauga, and will be processed with Demolition Control where appropriate.
