City Provides Additional Financial Assistance for 
Taxpayers during COVID-19

Council approved further actions in response to COVID-19 including, tax deferral, allowing online administrative penalty screening and prohibiting the sale and use of fireworks.

"Mississauga continues to run efficiently and deliver key services in the face of this pandemic," said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. "That includes continuing to take measures to keep Mississauga safe and provide cash flow relief to our residents. Prohibiting fireworks is the right thing to do at this time to help discourage large groups from gathering, keep our City safe and ensure our firefighters and enforcement teams are focused on the task at hand, that's fighting COVID-19."

Tax Deferral

To provide further financial assistance to taxpayers and help ease financial pressures as a result of the impacts of COVID-19, Council agreed to postpone regular final tax instalments and eliminate late payment charges and fees related to tax payment requests for changes. The City is requesting that landlords pass the tax deferral on to their tenants.  Details


Online Screening Reviews of Administrative Penalties

Council voted to amend the Administrative Penalty By-law and Licencing Administrative Penalty By-law to allow for written submissions for online screening reviews of administrative penalties. During the current Provincial Court closure period, the by-law amendments allows the screening review process to continue as an option for anyone seeking a review of their penalty notice, which was previously only allowed in-person.
This online option will be available later this spring for the following administrative penalties related:
For those who have already submitted requests for screening reviews, a notice will be mailed to the address that the court has on file providing the opportunity to have their dispute heard by way of online written submissions.
For those who chose to continue with an in-person review, their matters will be dealt with once the Court offices re-open. For all new penalty notices, the defendant will be given the option of paying the penalty, or choosing an online submission or in-person review of their penalty notice.


Virtual Fireworks Only

Council voted to prohibit the sale and use of fireworks until further notice to reduce the potential for large crowds and continue to promote resident safety for the duration of the emergency related to COVID-19 as declared by the Province of Ontario and ensure existing resources are available and used for resident safety.  While fireworks are currently banned in Mississauga, please enjoy a virtual display this year with highlights from previous Mississauga firework events presented by Tim Hortons:
