Welcome to Mississauga, Canada's 6th largest city and home to 734,000 residents representing cultures from around the globe. There are many services and programs to explore.
Residents now have the convenience of reporting coyote sightings online, and viewing reported sighting and activities through a new interactive map which is also accessible through all mobile devices.
This reporting method will only be used for tracking and mapping purposes. Residents should continue to contact Animal Services Dispatch at 905-615-3000 for any calls for service.
We encourage residents to enjoy and live in harmony with wildlife, including pigeons and coyotes. Do not interfere with their natural instincts by feeding them.
Council approved an updated Parks By-law that will ensure more safety and greater clarity for park users and the City’s enforcement staff. The by-law is effective immediately.
“As Mississauga continues to grow and evolve, updates to the Parks By-law are necessary for the City to effectively continue administering and enforcing all park related activities and programs,” said Jodi Robillos, Director, Parks, Forestry and Environment. “This also ensures that all park users are clearly made aware and understand what is and isn’t allowed in our parks. More importantly, it brings more safety measures for the public so that our parks can continue to be used and enjoyed by everyone.”
Some of the key highlights with the updated Parks By-law are as follows:
In reviewing and updating the by-law, staff from various business units were involved, including: Parks, Forestry and Environment; Enforcement; Corporate Security; Legal Services; Recreation; Animal Services; and Mobile Licensing. The City also consulted with residents, Leash-Free Mississauga and commercial dog walkers for regulations that relate to Leash-Free Zones.
