Increasing Housing Choices in Neighbourhoods Study

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Project Background

The City is looking at how we create more housing choices in Mississauga’s neighbourhoods. We understand our city needs more diverse types of housing for families, workforce, older adults, and newcomers.

The Province of Ontario is now requiring municipalities to permit:

  • Two additional residential units on lots with a detached, semi-detached, or rowhouse. Examples of these are garden suites or garage conversions
  • A range and mix of housing types such as duplexes and triplexes, and different living arrangements such as co-ownership and home share

We want to know how you think we could improve housing choices in Mississauga.

    What is Important in Your Neighbourhood? 

    We’ve heard that many of you are interested in a broader range of housing in your neighbourhood. To do this, we need to know more about your neighbourhood and what is important to you. This will help us find the right mix of housing choices that are affordable, fit within the feel of the neighbourhood, and have access to services and amenities like parking, stores, and community centres.

    Is it the park you go to for picnics  ? Is it the local school gym your volleyball team rents to play in  ? How about the lush gardens or old trees you enjoy on your street  ?

      Share a photo and a statement describing why it’s special to you!

    As we think about increasing housing options in Mississauga neighbourhoods your photos will help us know what unique features you love. Photo submissions will be closed to the public on December 31, 2021. 


    Take a look at this map to get some ideas on important features in neighbourhoods.
