City Council has taken the following actions to provide the community with financial relief during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Rent deferral for tenants in City facilities
Rent deferrals will be offered to tenants in 42 City-owned buildings for April, May and June.
City Council has also asked landlords to work with their residential and non-residential tenants to provide relief where feasible and necessary.
Tax payment deferral
Interim property tax payments
Interim property tax due dates in April, May and June 2020 are deferred to July, August and September 2020. Notices were distributed to taxpayers at the end of March 2020.

Final property tax payments
The City of Mississauga made the decision to defer final tax payments for 90 days and stop late payment charges and fees related to tax payments. This will help provide further financial assistance to families and businesses and ease financial pressures as a result of the impacts of COVID-19.
