Gypsy Moth Update
I have heard from a number of residents about the Gypsy Moth again this year. Unfortunately, the City is not spraying in 2021 for Gypsy Moth however I am strongly advocating for another aerial spray in affected areas for spring 2022.
To provide some background, the City works closely with neighbouring municipalities and agencies to ensure we are staying up-to-date on current practices, science, and being resourceful with partnerships whenever possible.

Aerial spraying is not being implemented in 2021 in Mississauga, Hamilton nor Toronto.

This year, treatment for Gypsy Moth focuses on Tree Azin injections and ground spray of Btk on public trees.

Neighbouring municipalities that are conducting aerial sprays of Btk for Gypsy Moth (Oakville, Burlington, TRCA, and Conservation Halton) are also focusing on public woodlands and not spraying residential/private properties or parks.

The City last sprayed in 2018 over 1,900 hectares and tend to be on a 7-9 year cycle.

Staff is now noticing a trend of the moths becoming more “naturalized” and less “cyclical”. Further egg mass testing is scheduled for the fall to predict future populations and City staff will evaluate treatment options for 2022 and will present to Council with a treatment plan for approval.

Although we had a cool wet spring, the milder winters are not killing off enough of the egg masses as we have seen in previous years.

Decisions to aerial spray need to be made very early in the calendar year to get the necessary approvals that take weeks from agencies like Ministry of Environment and Transport Canada (due to proximity to local airports and flight paths).

Have your say on Mississauga's Cultural Districts
Mississauga is well-positioned to become an arts-friendly city.

With a growing arts, culture and creative industry scene and unique neighbourhoods that are emerging as popular hubs of creativity and innovation, Mississauga is well positioned to be an arts-friendly city. Many neighbourhoods in Mississauga are intensifying and we are witnessing a growing cluster of arts and culture facilities, and diverse entertainment, retail and dining options. The waterfront is more vibrant than ever and teeming with boating enthusiasts, cyclists, art lovers and foodies. Exciting things are already happening in our city and the stage is set for the development of Cultural Districts.

What are Cultural Districts?

Cultural districts are distinct, mixed-use areas that attract people because of their high concentration of cultural facilities (e.g. studios, performance venues, galleries, museums) and activities (e.g. events, shopping, dining, and public space activations). These neighbourhoods act as local cultural destinations that invite residents and visitors alike to engage in creative expression, social gathering and community building.

Introducing Mississauga’s Cultural Districts

Building on recommendations in the 2019-2029 Culture Master Plan to focus cultural development and City services in distinct cultural districts, we have identified six neighbourhoods for the establishment of Cultural Districts:

  • Clarkson
  • Cooksville
  • Downtown
  • Malton
  • Port Credit
  • Streetsville

Click here for more information on Cultural District boundaries and the District-specific themes that will frame how these neighbourhoods develop as focal points for culture in Mississauga.

In 2021 we are looking for you to get involved and help us plan for Mississauga's Cultural Districts.

We want to hear from you! Complete the SURVEY, share your insights in the MAP, contribute to the IDEA BANK and submit questions to the Q/A.

This page will be your one stop shop for everything related to the Districts, upcoming engagement opportunities and information regarding future events and public space activations!

Have Your Say – Does Mississauga Need an Apartment Building Standards and Maintenance Program?
Mississauga has a number of property-related by-laws that detail the requirements for maintaining rental apartment buildings and other properties across the city.
Staff are currently assessing the need for an Apartment Building Standards and Maintenance Program similar to the City of Toronto’s RentSafeTO program.
The proposed program could include a proactive rental building inspection plan.

Anyone with an interest in rental apartment building standards and maintenance can share their experiences, thoughts and ideas by visiting mississauga.ca/apartment-standards-and-maintenance to ask a question and take the online survey.
The input received will help determine the need for a standards and maintenance program for rental apartment buildings in Mississauga.

The online survey is available until July 31, 2021.
