July 2, 2020 - City of Mississauga Noise Control Program Review, Update

Dear Applewood Residents,

In January 2020 and March 2020 we provided our members with an update on the City of Mississauga's Review to revise the Noise Control by-laws with a summary of this process also available on this website by scrolling down on this page to update below dated March 1, 2020..

It has now been learnt that the opportunity for this review to be presented at the General Committee for discussion and then to Council meeting for vote and possible approval will not happen in this order due to changes that have happened at the City of MIssissauga because of covid-19.

What is happening is that this Noise Control Program Review Report will now go directly to the Council Meeting taking place this Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 and will be presented with a recommendation made for it to be voted on for approval.

This is very important and all residents should be aware of what this Noise Control Program Review includes as it definitely affects all residents of Mississauga.

To view the July 8th council meeting's agenda and to read this iimportant review please go to https://www7.mississauga.ca/documents/committees/council/2020/2020_07_08_Council_Agenda_REVISED.pdf

March 1, 2020 - City of Mississauga, Noise By-Law Review Update

Dear Applewood Residents,

The city's Noise Control By-Law Review community consultations and target group sessions have now ended. The final day to complete the online Noise Review survey was Saturday, February 29th, 2020. ( As was also previously noted on the AHHRA website in the request for all residents to complete this survey.)

Below is a brief summary of the Noise Review Consultation process as was made known to the public from the City's information page at: https://yoursay.mississauga.ca/noise-control?tool=survey_tool

There were 6 separate community consultations held at various locations in the City of Mississauga during the month of January 2020 from 6 - 8 pm. The attendance at the above 6 sessions was not very high unfortunately; except for the session in Port Credit.

At two of the sessions there were @ 5 residents at each, at other there were @ 8, at one there were no attendees and in Port Credit there were well over 100 people who attended.

The purpose of these gatherings was to reach out to the public and inform them of the plans to review and revise the existing city's noise and nuisance by-laws and to ask for public input on what they (the public) view as the main noise nuisances/ concerns and to share ideas/input on how to improve in the revision of these by-laws.

The presentation that was shown at the Tomken Arena community consultation can be viewed by opening the attachment to this email. Following this power-point presentation, the discussion took place followed by a question and answer period. Additional points that were noted at this session were the noise nuisances of power machines/equipment, shouting and swearing. Attendees also expressed the need for more quiet hours in the neighbourhoods. Finally, concern was expressed that  when the online survey was completed and submitted there was no indication/confirmation of it being successfully sent. The City staff replied that these points would be considered and looked into.

In addition to these 6 community sessions, there were 3 target group sessions during the first 2 weeks of February. These target groups were for the Ratepayer Associations, the Construction companies and the BIA's. These 3 sessions were again for about 1.5 - 2 hours. Attendance for these was @ 6 people at the RA, 3 at the Construction session and @ 10 at the BIA one.

As was told to attendees at the ratepayer's session in early February:

By that time there were 2,815 submitted online surveys.

From the submitted surveys as well as from the overall responses given by residents from the community consultations, the major noise concerns to most residents come from construction, traffic and fireworks. And, approximately 58% of these online surveys that had been submitted by that time, it was recorded that residents do not support construction hours to be permitted on Sundays.

Online surveys:  There is no final date provided by the City for online survey submissions however, after asking about this, we were informed that February 29th was going to be the final day to complete the online survey. Once the online surveys have been received and the community and target group consultations sessions completed, all input would be considered and a proposed revised Noise by-law will be presented to the City Councillors at a General Committee Meeting for discussion.

No date has been provided yet as to when this will be.

Once it has been addressed and discussed at the General Committee meeting by Councillors with City staff and any proposed changes that need to be made are addressed and completed, it will again be presented to City Councillors for their final approval/vote.

From what is known to date, this process  is projected to be completed  by May 2020.  Any updates to the above will be shared with AHHRA members.

All residents are welcome attend and participate in the City of Mississauga's Noise Control By-Law Review Community Consultation.  This very important session is one of 9 happening in Mississauga.  It is taking place on Thursday, January 30th, 2020 at the Tomken Twin Arena located on 4495 Tomken Road from 6 pm - 8 pm.  Come to give your input on the proposed changes to the City's Noise by-law.

November 6, 2019 - Update from the Region of Peel

The Region of Peel has provided an update on the Phase 2 work being done for the Cawthra Rd. Sanitary Sewer and Watermain - Residents.  

November 4, 2019 Projects: 18-2252 and 15-1345


We have started construction of the Cawthra Rd. Sanitary Sewer and Watermain, Phase 2. This is part of the Region of Peel’s multi-phased project to reduce basement flooding by diverting wastewater flow away from areas prone to surcharging, expand sanitary sewer capacity, and upgrade the water system capacity and reliability.

The scope of the Phase 2 project includes:

Installing 1500mm (5 feet) diameter sanitary sewer on Cawthra Rd from Burnhamthorpe Rd E to Bloor St, by tunnelling.

Installing 1200mm (4 feet) diameter sanitary sewer on Bloor St W from Mississauga Valley Blvd to Cawthra Rd, by tunnelling. 

Installing smaller diameter sanitary sewers and watermains along various adjacent streets, by the open cut method.


Construction started in November 2019 and will be substantially completed by January 2021.


We will manage traffic to minimize disruption to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. 

Regular working hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. We may extend working hours for tunneling activities.

It is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance if we need to shut off your water. Occasionally, we may have to reduce this notice to 24 hours.


All roads and streets within the project limits will always remain open to traffic; however, we may need to temporarily reduce traffic to a single lane during some portions of work.

Due to construction activities, we may need to block your driveway for a short time. We will contact you before we do this to arrange for the best time and for alternate access, if needed.

On-street parking will be reduced during construction.


We will have to remove some trees along the construction route. We will replace these trees and restore landscaping when we have finished the work.


Noise level: Medium, some vibrations might be felt.

Contractor: Technicore Underground Inc. Site Inspector: Cole Engineering Group Ltd.
