Unlicensed fruit vendor and car meet attendees facing COVID-related fines in Mississauga


Published June 8, 2021 at 7:48 pm


The City of Mississauga issued a total of 15 tickets to businesses and individuals who allegedly violated COVID-19-related rules in Mississauga. 

Although the city is no longer under a stay-at-home order, Mississauga–and Ontario overall–will not enter step one of the Province’s reopening plan until June 11. As of now, private indoor gatherings are prohibited (although single parents and people who live alone are permitted to join one other household) and outdoor gatherings are severely restricted. 

According to a recent enforcement report, the city fined 14 individuals and one business last week. The report says that 14 people were fined $880 for allegedly attending illegal private gatherings and one business was fined $880 for allegedly running afoul of COVID-related rules. 

On June 4, an “unlicensed fruit vendor” was ticketed for allegedly failing to ensure that proper masking and distancing protocols were followed. That same day, 11 tickets were issued to people who allegedly attended a “car meet.” 

Tickets were also issued to people operating noisy vehicles. 

The enforcement report says that three tickets were issued over the weekend–two on June 5 and one on June 6–in response to gatherings at private homes.
