The needs of a growing population and confidence in Mississauga’s economy are reflected in building permits issued by the City in 2013.
The growth we are seeing in business-related permits means that our growing population will have access to jobs close to home. Industrial and commercial permit applications accounted for more than half of all applications filed in 2013. Growth in business is important for the health of any community that expects significant population growth. When people have access to jobs closer to home, shorter commutes mean a better quality of life and less congestion on GTA roads.
Mississauga’s growing population also means finding different ways to house people. With little open land left to develop, the City is seeing more urban types of development. In 2013, permits for townhouse and apartment units added up to about 10 times the number of the traditional single family units that used to be the hallmark of the suburban GTA.
Trends in Mississauga building show that our community is growing in a healthy, well-rounded way.
