- $192 million in industrial permits
- $115 million in other permits such as schools, government buildings, churches
“For the second consecutive year the City of Mississauga has issued $1.3 billion in building permits,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie in the release. “This is further proof that Mississauga continues to be a city in demand and a leading destination where people choose to build a more promising future … These significant and ongoing building investments help strengthen Mississauga’s tax base which allows Council to fund important resident priorities we all rely on including libraries, community centres and public transit.”
The City also continued to see efficiencies in permit submissions and issuances with the full use of ePlans – an online application process launched in 2015 that allows customers to submit building permits, site plans and other applications electronically 24/7.
“2016 was the year we fully implemented ePlans and launched field automation,” said Ed Sajecki, Commissioner of Planning and Building, in the release. “These steps led to improved efficiency and 25 per cent quicker review times for building permits.”
