Have Your Say on the Adequate Heat By-Law

City services | March 1, 2018

The City of Mississauga is seeking input from the public and stakeholders, including tenants, property managers, owners and contractors on recommendations for the Adequate Heat By-Law. Last fall, Council directed staff to review the By-law to ensure that landlords can be flexible when responding to fluctuating weather patterns.

Two meetings to discuss views, possible changes and recommendations on the Adequate Heat By-law will take place this month. Some questions that the meetings will explore include:

• Should cooling provisions be added to the By-law at the expense of the owner?
• Should air conditioning be considered an essential service?
• Should the dates in the adequate heat By-law be flexible?

Please mark your calendars for the following public meetings:

What: Community Workshop: Ideas and Options for the Adequate Heat By-Law
Date: Thursday, March 8
Location: Frank McKechnie Community Centre, Auditorium 1 and 2, 310 Bristol Road East
