COVID-19: latest updates on the City's response and service impacts
Schedule Permit Inspections
Schedule Inspection

When scheduling an inspection, only include the actual number portion. You do not need to include the application type or year in the Application # box. For example, your full application identification may be BP 3NEW 10 9999 FDN. You only need to include the 9999 portion in the Application # box.


Here at the City of Mississauga, the health and safety of our residents, clients and staff remains our top priority. Following the recommendations of health officials we have encouraged staff to begin working from home in order to do our part to help prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. During this time we are suspending services at the Planning and Building Services counter until further notice. We would ask all general inquiries be processed via our 3-1-1 Contact Centre (905-615-4311 outside city limits).

General Inquiries

For all general inquiries such as determining your property's zoning, building permit application requirements or fee information we would encourage you to visit our online resources available at Planning & Building Webpage.
Otherwise you can contact our 3-1-1 Contact Centre (by dialing 905-615-4311) who will forward your call to the appropriate representatives for response.

Building Permit Inspections

Services at the Inspection Services counter, located on the 2nd floor Civic Centre, are suspended until further notice. Inspections can be scheduled online at Building Permit Inspections using the Permit # and Web Access ID noted on the Building Permit Notice Card. However, in the interest of maintaining the health and safety of residents, clients and staff, we ask that inspection requests be prioritized and/or deferred where possible.


We understand that this may cause an inconvenience to many of you, however given the current circumstances we believe this is the best option and appreciate your patience as we move through this.

Thank you all for your patience during this time.
