    Are short-term accommodations good or bad for Mississauga?

    The City of Mississauga is asking residents to share their thoughts on short-term accommodation (STA) in the City by taking a survey.

    On June 8, 2016, Council directed that City staff examine the issue of short-term accommodation and consult with stakeholders including the Mississauga Real Estate Board, Mississauga Landlord and Tenant associations, along with the tourism industry to develop appropriate By-laws, if any, to address the situation.

    Since that time, staff have been consulting with the public and stakeholders.

    City staff are proposing these and other changes to the Zoning By-law that would help regulate STAs in Mississauga:
    • establish a registry or licensing program
    • permit short-term accommodations in detached, semi-detached, and street townhouse dwellings in principle private residences
    • limit the total number of days that a unit is rented per month or year
    • define short-term accommodations for regulatory purposes
    • ensure adequate parking is available
    Public feedback received through the survey will be incorporated into a report with final recommendations on the future of short-term accommodations that City staff will present to Council later in 2017.
