Foundation Drain Collector Sump Pump Subsidy

A sump pump subsidy program has been established to assist homeowners that live on streets serviced by the municipal Foundation Drain Collector (FDC) system. The City is offering eligible homeowners a financial subsidy to install a sump pump.

A sump pump can provide an additional safeguard against basement water infiltration. This subsidy covers up to 100 percent of the cost of installing a sump pump, to a maximum of $6,000.

The City does not employ or authorize third-party companies to install sump pumps on the City’s behalf. We recommend exercising caution before providing any personal information to door-to-door sales people or committing to a service.

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible to apply for this subsidy homeowners must meet all of the following eligibility requirements:

  • The property must be located on a street serviced by the FDC system
  • Sump pump was installed on or after January 1, 2008
  • Sump pump was installed by a plumber licensed in Ontario with a City of Mississauga business licence
  • Original invoice(s) or receipt(s) for the full cost of the sump pump installation are attached to your completed application form. The invoice or receipt must show:

    • Cost breakdown of all charges
    • Total amount paid
