New Standards for Leash Free Zones in Mississauga


City Council recently approved changes to Mississauga’s Leash-Free Zones to keep them safe for users.

Anyone walking more than four dogs at one time, up to a limit of eight dogs, in one of Mississauga’s Leash-Free Zones will need to apply for a permit from the City of Mississauga. This permit must be visible while using any Mississauga Leash-Free Zones.  The Dog Walker Permit Fee will be $250, with a $50 charge, for each additional dog walker. The new Dog Walker Permit Fee will take effect this Spring.

Leash-Free Zones in City parks began in 1997.  There are presently 7 Leash-Free Zones in Mississauga.  Leash-Free Zones are maintained by Leash-Free Mississauga (LFM), a non-profit organization established in 1997.  To find a dog park in your area, please visit www.mississauga.ca/parks.
