Sign By-Laws: City of Mississauga, and Surrounding Cities


Important Member Update: July 5, 2019

Mississauga Sign By-Law 54-02 Amendment:


The Mississauga Real Estate Board has been working with the City of Mississauga, lobbying on your behalf, to better reflect the needs of Mississauga REALTORS® related to the current Sign By-Laws. MREB's focus was specifically getting formal permission granted for “Sold” and “Coming Soon” signage, as well asking for an increase in the number of "Open House" signs for a property. The City currently allows 3 sign maximum.
MREB is pleased to announce that our lobbying efforts have been successful. Mississauga is the first City in the region to allow the use of "Coming Soon" signs. Following are the amendments to the City of Mississauga's Sign By-Laws effective July 4, 2019. To view the revised Sign By-law 54-02 (PDF), click here
