Councillor's Message

Dear neighbours,

Thank you for everyones continued diligence during this trying time.  Thanksgiving will be celebrated very different this year and I remind everyone that there are new restrictions in place and the only way we will curve this pandemic is by following the guidelines.

If there is anything my office can assist you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Stay safe.



The limit to social gatherings has been restricted to 10 people indoors and 25 outdoors. This includes functions, parties, dinners, gatherings, BBQs or wedding receptions held in private residences, backyards and parks. 

Your last words shouldn't be a text!  The next tine you are driving and decide to use your phone - think again, it's dangerous and illegal.

October 17 & 18

The City is now accepting applications for its Windrow Snow Clearing Program for some residents needing snow clearing assistance. 

The program is available for up to 300 residents who are 65 years or older, or who have a physical disability.
Program participants can expect to have a three-metre space in their windrow cleared during the winter season. A windrow is the pile of snow left at the end of a driveway after the street has been plowed. 

The program does not include the clearing of the whole driveway.
Residents  can report on many issues under the "Report a Problem" button.

Budget 2021

Mississauga residents are invited to participate in a Budget Engagement Session on the proposed 2021 Budget with Mayor Bonnie Crombie and the City's senior staff. Residents can choose from sessions taking place on October 8 (city-wide).  Staff from the Region of Peel will also participate in the city-wide session.

Residents will receive a telephone call in advance based on a list provided by a virtual town hall service, with an invitation to participate in one of the upcoming sessions. 

They will be able to ask a question and hear about the City's proposed 2021 Budget. Residents will receive a second telephone call just before the session begins. 

The call out is done to ensure as many residents as possible have an opportunity to participate. Anyone who receives a call and does not wish to participate can simply hang up.

"Council has already had significant consultation through the COVID-19 recovery process and we have captured those points already. The City's Budget Engagement Sessions provide us with additional input on what is important to residents," said Gary Kent, Commissioner of Corporate Services and Chief Financial Officer. "We face a challenging year, making these sessions an important part of our budget engagement."

Residents can also register to participate in the Budget Engagement Sessions. In addition, the city-wide session will be available to watch on Facebook Live and online.

Information about the City's budget is available at mississauga.ca/budget. Other ways to participate in the budget process include:

Pedestrian Master Plan

The City of Mississauga is creating its first Pedestrian Master Plan to help identify gaps in its pedestrian network. The City will seek community feedback through an online survey and a virtual public information session in the fall.

The Pedestrian Master Plan will:
  • review the City's existing pedestrian network (sidewalks, crosswalks, walkways, multi-use trails), and identify opportunities for future infrastructure projects
  • identify key destinations for pedestrians (e.g. transit stops, schools, local amenities etc.)
  • analyze how growth will impact existing and future pedestrian infrastructure
  • set short, medium and long-term service delivery and project priorities
  • review best practices for pedestrian infrastructure and network design
 The creation of the Pedestrian Master Plan comes from the City's Transportation Master Plan, which identifies the need for a pedestrian network plan.
Complete the online survey by October 23 and learn more about the Pedestrian Master Plan.

If you have an upcoming community event and you 
would like to submit it in our e-newsletter, please
