Residential Rental Licensing Pilot


In Q2 2023, Council directed staff to implement a two-year Residential Rental Licensing (RRL) pilot program in Wards 1, 3, 4, 5 and 7 to deal with the growing number of problem rentals. The objective of the program is:

"To protect the health and safety, and human rights of persons to protect the residential amenity, character and stability of residential areas. To proactively mitigate potential risks that may exist within a particular business sector and provide enforcement mechanism to respond to complaints relating to that sector."​

The program's goals include helping to maintain the character of local neighbourhoods, uphold property standard by-laws, and keep individuals and families safe with enforcement of the Ontario Fire Code.

The RRL pilot program launched on January 1, 2024, requiring owners of rental properties with one (1) to four (4) residential dwelling units to obtain a licence through the City Clerk's Office at 1st Floor City Hall - 2 Wellington St West . This program is not managed by the City of Brampton's Building Division.
