A Brief Guide to Industrial Fencing By-laws in Mississauga

One of the best ways to protect your industrial property from unwanted visitors and safeguard your business from potential threats is by installing a security fence on your property. Fences can provide you with a number of benefits including aesthetic appeal, solitude, privacy, access control to separate on-site locations, and more. But before you go ahead and install your property fence, you must ensure it adheres to strict city by-laws and regulations. If your business is located in Mississauga and you plan to install a security fence, read on to learn what’s expected of you to prevent complicated situations and expensive fines.


Though you do not require a permit to install a fence, fencing by-laws are in place to regulate the placement, height and appearance of fences in residential and commercial areas. In an effort to ensure the public’s safety and maintain an acceptable appearance, the following regulations must be taken into account prior to your fence installation:

According to the by-law, a fence is any type of wall, railing, hedge, shrubs or gate which is used to enclose, divide or establish a property line.

If you plan to install a fence to enclose a swimming pool or fish pond, it must comply with the Swimming Pool Enclosure By-law 191-11.

In most situations, the maximum height allowed for a typical fence in a rear or side yard is 6 feet, 7 inches.

Fences cannot be installed on city property, highways or road allowances.

They must be maintained and in good standing at all times.
