City of Mississauga Sign By-Law

We have received an email from Planning and Building Department of the City of Mississauga, asking that we advise our Members of their regulations regarding signs.   Apparently, the onset of spring weather is bringing with it numerous complaints to the City regarding the installation of real estate type signs.  

Signs should be posted in accordance with the City of Mississauga’s Sign By-law 54-2002.  Signs displayed in contravention of the By-law will be removed by City staff and/or charges laid against the agent, broker and property owner pursuant to the Provincial Offences Act without further notice.  

By-law provisions include, but not limited to:

  • Real estate signs are not permitted to be displayed on public property, including public fences between municipal streets.
  • Directional “house for sale” signs are not permitted.
  • Real estate signs cannot exceed 1 m2 in area on residential zoned properties and 4m2 on non-residential zoned properties.
  • Only one (1) real estate sign is permitted to be displayed per street line.
  • Banner signs are prohibited.
  • The display of a sign or advertisement on a vehicle or trailer parked or located for the primary purpose of displaying the sign or advertisement is prohibited.
  • Open house signs are not permitted to be displayed on traffic islands or medians.
  • Open house signs are only permitted to be displayed during the hours of the open house.
  • “Coming Soon” signs are not permitted
  • “Sold” signs are not permitted - PLEASE NOTE, this does refer to SOLD signs posted on listed properties. They are not allowed.                              

For comprehensive requirements regarding real estate and open house signs, please refer to the Sign By-law at:
