Mississauga is one of Canada's fastest growing cities. Every year more commercial and retail
businesses place signs on buildings, roadways, storefronts and sidewalks to advertise their
location, products and services.
This tremendous growth, in addition to the challenge of enforcing former sign by-laws, has
resulted in the proliferation of illegal signs throughout the city. These illegal signs clutter
the city with visual pollution and also create a traffic safety hazard.
To regulate signs and advertising devices within the city and to respond to the concerns and
needs of the City, the sign industry, Mississauga businesses and the public, on January 30,
2002, Mississauga City Council enacted a new Sign By-law (0054-2002). The by-law outlines the
requirements for all sign types, permit applications and penalties for contraventions. The new
Sign By-law has been in effect since May 1, 2002.
