Apartment rental compliance

Mississauga Apartment Rental Compliance (MARC) is a pilot program that Council approved in December 2021. The pilot will run for five years and require apartment buildings in Mississauga that meet the program criteria to be registered with the City.

The pilot will begin in July 2022. More information about the pilot will become available in June 2022.

How it works

As part of the pilot, By-law Enforcement staff will:

  • Conduct building inspections to ensure buildings meet maintenance standards and service level requirements
  • Conduct education and awareness activities for tenants and building owners

Benefits of the pilot include:

  • Strengthened enforcement of City by-laws
  • Promotion of preventive maintenance of apartment buildings
  • Enhanced tenant engagement and access to information

The pilot’s success will be measured through:

  • The number of registration certificates issued
  • Building evaluation and audit results
  • Tenant engagement
  • Compliance with by-law requirements

For more information about the pilot, read the Corporate Report.

Do I need to register my apartment building?

You must register your apartment building if it has two or more storeys and six or more residential units that share a common area.

You do not need to register your building for the pilot if it is a:

  • Condominium
  • Long-term care home
  • Licensed retirement home
  • Housing co-operative

Registration fee

In 2022, the registration fee is $18.25 per residential unit.

Your total fee will be included in the invoice you receive from the City after you submit the registration application.
