Apply for a lighting exemption
Complete the Lighting Exemption Application and pay the fee of $255.66 ($226.25 plus $29.41 HST) by cheque or money order payable to the City of Mississauga. Submit your application and fee by mail to:
Compliance and Licensing Enforcement
300 City Centre Drive, ground floor
Mississauga ON L5B 3C1
You can also book an appointment to submit your application in person at the Compliance and Licensing Enforcement Office. You’ll only be admitted to the building if you have a scheduled appointment.
Notify local residents
Once we receive your application, we’ll create and send you a notice to let local residents know about your exemption. You’ll need to distribute this notice to all residents to property owners within a 100 metre radius from the event location. We’ll also send you a map of the specific area.
We’ll let you know how to distribute the notice by either:
- Mailing it through Canada Post
- Hand delivering it door to door
- Publishing the notice in a newspaper for two consecutive days in the ten days proceeding your event
City staff will do random checks to confirm that the notice has been circulated.
Local residents will then have two weeks to contact the City to voice their concerns, objections or comments about the event.
What happens next
We’ll review the feedback from residents and other stakeholders to decide whether to grant your exemption. We’ll notify you about the decision.
