The City of Mississauga needs to protect its supply of rental housing. With limited development of new rental housing and vacancy rates at 0.9 per cent, City staff brought forward a proposed Rental Housing Protection By-law to the Planning and Development Committee. The by-law will regulate the demolition and conversion of rental housing. This includes apartments and townhouses built as rental housing at the outset. City staff expects to bring the proposed by-law to Council for approval by early July 2018.
