Mississauga has certain standards of care when dealing with snow clearance and homeowner responsibilities.
What are the snow clearing standards in Mississauga?
How quickly will my street be sanded or plowed after a snowfall?
During or after a snowfall, major roads and collector routes are cleared first to ensure that emergency service vehicles like fire trucks and ambulances can travel safely. All other City roads are cleared, and/or salted within 24 hours of a snowfall. With heavy snowfalls or successive storms, this timing can be extended to 48 hours depending on the severity of the snowfall. If you require more information call the Works Division at 905-615-3000.
Do we have to clear our own sidewalk?
Budget constraints do not allow us to plow all City sidewalks. Therefore, we depend on residents to assist in helping keep everyone in our community on the move by clearing the walks adjacent to their properties. If you require more information call the Works Division at 905-615-3000.

Who can I call regarding property assessment? How is my assessment determined?
The City of Mississauga does not determine the value of your property. Contact the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) at 1-866-296-6722. The Assessment Act requires that the assessed value of your property be based on what the property would most likely sell for on a specific date. MPAC continually collects information about properties to ensure that those with similar features have similar, but not necessarily identical assessed values. For specific information such as ownership and lot size, legal descriptions, visit the City Clerk's Office located at the Mississauga Civic Centre, 3rd Floor.

Where and when can I post my garage sale signs?
Garage sale signs are regulated under the City’s Sign By-law. Under the by-law, signs must adhere to the following regulations:
A garage sale sign shall not exceed 0.6 metres (2 ft.) in any dimension and shall not exceed 0.36 m2 (3.9 sq. ft.) in sign area.
A garage sale sign may be located in the untravelled portion of the street allowance or on a poster sleeve, but not in a manner so as to create a traffic hazard.
No person shall place or locate a garage sale sign before 5:00 p.m. of the day immediately before the garage sale and all such signs shall be removed by no later than 7:00 a.m. of the day immediately following the garage sale.
