MISSISSAUGA BY-LAW ENSURES TENANTS HAVE ADEQUATE BUILDING TEMPERATURES DURING FLUCTUATING WEATHER

As the weather cools down this fall, the City of Mississauga wants to remind landlords and tenants that the Adequate Temperature By-Law will ensure buildings are maintained at a suitable temperature during fluctuating and extreme weather.

The by-law requires landlords to provide adequate and suitable heat, meaning the air temperature in a unit is at least 20 degrees Celsius. The by-law also requires landlords to provide adequate and suitable cooling, meaning that the air temperature in a unit does not exceed 26 degrees Celsius when equipped or furnished with an air conditioning system. Additionally, adequate and suitable heat and cooling must also be maintained in all areas of the unit.

“When the by-law was updated in 2018, it was to ensure landlords could be flexible when regulating heat in their buildings during these fluctuating and extreme weather patterns,” said Sam Rogers, Director, Enforcement. “The by-law complies with provincial requirements and responds to changing weather conditions. A violation of this by-law can lead to a fine of up to $100,000.”

Background:

This public meeting is the latest step in the multi-year project which began with Inspiration Lakeview consultations in 2010. The development plans follow the framework outlined in the Lakeview Waterfront Master Plan which was endorsed by Council in November 2019 and have included extensive community consultation. A future public engagement session will be held in the fall regarding the parkland contained within the proposal.  Once the technical review is complete and issues have been resolved, a report will be brought forward to a future Planning and Development Committee outlining the recommendations for the development proposal.

The Lakeview Waterfront is one of Mississauga’s three key redevelopment projects transforming the waterfront along with Port Credit West Village and 1 Port Street.
