​​New Rules for Driveway Paving Contractors

To support contractors and homeowners and ensure reliable construction, the City of Brampton has strengthened rules for contractors performing driveway paving work.

On February 17, 2021 City Council approved amendments to Schedule 9 of Business Licensing By-law 332-2013, relating to Driveway Paving Contractors.

What has changed?

Effective March 2021:

Contractors are required to submit a $5,000 security deposit and complete an online training program administered by the City. These requirements must be met prior to a licence being renewed or issued by the City.

Licence applications and renewals must be submitted through the new online application process. Driveway Paving Contractors may book an appointment ​to attend City Hall to provide the required security deposit or submit security deposit in the City Clerks Office drop box at the 24 hour lobby at City Hall – select Driveway Paving & Pool Installation Contractors.

Property owners must ensure that the contractor performing driveway paving work on their property is licensed by the City of Brampton. A list of licensed contractors is available here.

Both contractors and residents are responsible for ensuring that construction is in line with City by-laws, to help create safer homes and an attractive community. Failure to follow the rules could result in penalties issued to both contractor and the homeowner.
