VIRTUAL CANADA DAY 

JULY 1 - 10:00 AM

Each year, thousands of residents and visitors come together on July 1 to celebrate Canada Day at Mississauga Celebration Square. This year, the City of Mississauga is inviting the community to gather virtually to celebrate Canada's 153rd birthday, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the City's top priority of keeping people safe.

Good Morning Mississauga is a virtual event that will allow residents and online guests to mark this national holiday safely from the comfort of their homes, yards and patios.


Details on the City's Canada Day celebration can be found 

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor Tim Hortons, supporting sponsors Bell and Alectra, and our media partners ET Canada and Global News

This virtual Canada Day event has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada through the Canadian Heritage grant.

Happy Canada Day

On-Street Parking Enforcement Resumes

As of July 6, the City of Mississauga will be resuming enforcement of on-street parking limits and overnight parking restrictions which were previously suspended in response to COVID-19. 

Enforcement will resume for on-street time limit offences, including five and 15 hour parking, as well as overnight parking restrictions from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.

To help inform Mississauga residents that on-street parking enforcement will resume on July 6, the City will be issuing educational warning notices from July 2 to 5 to vehicles parked on-street or overnight between 2 and 6 a.m.

Starting July 6, residents can  request a permit if they wish to park on-street for more than five hours or overnight (2 to 6 a.m.). Until enforcement resumes on July 6, residents do not require a permit.

If residents observe an on-street parking violation as of July 6, they are asked to report it to 311 (905-615-4311 if outside City limits). Residents can also report on-street time limit offences using the PingStreet mobile app or online.

*************************************************************

Each week, we take more steps to return to business as usual in Mississauga. This  week we are moving forward with a number of actions to further reopen our City. Part of this work is extending permissions for businesses to use outdoor signs more easily to promote their business, as well as preparing to resume on street parking enforcement. 

We must continue to practice physical distancing and proper hygiene to prevent a large second wave. We may be done with the pandemic, but it is not done with us. If we all do our part, we will keep our City safe and continue our steady progress to return to normal."

Please stay safe and healthy.
