Demolition Control By-law

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

The Demolition Control By-Law affects all residential properties. A Demolition Control Permit is required for the demolition of any dwelling unit. Demolition permits are still required for all buildings in Mississauga, and will be processed with Demolition Control where appropriate.

If demolishing less than six dwelling units:

  • Follows the current process to obtain a demolition permit, impact is expected to be minimal
  • Standard conditions such as timelines for rebuilding will be required
  • No fee required

If demolishing six or more dwelling units (non-rental):

  • Demolition permit application made via ePlans
  • Reviewed by planning staff
  • Standard conditions such as timelines for rebuilding will be required
  • No fee required

If demolishing six or more dwelling units (rental):

  • Demolition permit application made via ePlans
  • Reviewed by planning staff
  • Section 99.1 permit (Rental Housing Protection By-law) may be required
  • Council approval required
  • Standard conditions such as timelines for rebuilding will be required
  • Fees are $160 per unit
