Mississauga’s Affordable Housing Strategy and Action Plan

Mississauga’s Affordable Housing Strategy and Action Plan




Public Consultation Workshops – Second Units

Ontario laws now require municipalities to allow second units in homes. Second units are also known as
basement apartments or in-law suites.

Mississauga is working on a housing strategy that includes second units.
They want to discuss:
• preserving neighbourhood character
• ensuring safety
• maintaining City services

The City is holding five public consultation workshops to talk to you about it.
• February 16 – Mississauga Seniors’ Centre, 1389 Cawthra Road
• February 21 – South Common Community Centre, 2233 South Millway
• February 23 – Malton Community Centre, 3540 Morning Star Drive
• March 1 – Meadowvale Community Centre, 6655 Glen Erin Drive
• March 6 – Civic Centre, Council Chamber, 300 City Centre Drive

All workshops will have the same schedule.
