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.
