The City of Mississauga is updating its Noise By-laws to make them more responsive to community needs. As the City evolves from a suburban community to an urban centre, there is an opportunity to modernize how noise is regulated.

City staff are currently reviewing the Nuisance Type Noise By-law and the Noise Control By-law and will consult with residents and stakeholders on a range of proposed options. The potential changes will cover aspects such as the complaint response process, residential and construction noise exemptions, permitted periods for amplified sound and noise thresholds.

In the next couple months, we will be hosting public meetings and conducting an online survey. We would also like your input, as representatives of the community. We will be hosting a focus group session in February to discuss specific issues such as noise thresholds. We will send further details when they are available.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or require further information.
