PERMIT - Apply for Noise exemptions
If you’re planning an activity or event that’s going to create a lot of noise during a certain timeframe, you can apply for an exemption to the Noise Control By-law in advance. The city must receive your application a minimum of eight weeks before your event date.
Exemptions for special events
You’ll need to apply for an exemption if your event will include a live band, music or amplified sound from:
- Monday to Saturday earlier than 7 a.m. or later than 5 p.m.
- Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If your event is for a community charity or organization, please contact your Community Liaison Officer.
Apply for a noise exemption
Complete the Noise Exemption Application and pay the fee of $261.60 (including HST) by cheque or money order, payable to the City of Mississauga. Submit your application and fee by mail or in person to:

Notify local residents
Once they receive your application, they will create and send you a notice to let local residents know about your exemption. You’ll need to distribute this notice to all residents to property owners within a 500 metre radius from the event location. They will also send you a map of the specific area.
