Economic Development Strategy

Background

The City of Mississauga is preparing for a new era of economic growth and prosperity in a highly innovative, competitive and connected global economy. To do this, The City’s Economic Development Office (EDO) has embarked on the creation of a new five year Economic Development Strategy with the help of a consultant team from Hatch. With plans to launch in 2020, the new Strategy will build on the success of the previous 10-year strategy that focused on global businesses attraction, employment and investment.

To keep the community informed, EDO created this dedicated site to post the latest news and updates on the Strategy’s progress and to promote opportunities for engagement and participation.

Strategy News & Updates:

Hatch has completed a number of thematic workshops built around the future Economic Development Strategy’s focus. Participants included community and business leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators and academia to provide insights into Mississauga’s current economic state, and what aspirations the City can strive for to build a strong and sustainable economy.

The level of engagement and valued insights were well received, and helped to validate the themes already shaping the Strategy. The following themes were discussed: business; places; infrastructure and people. The structured, interactive sessions asked participants their views on a number of factors and barriers to Mississauga as a place to do business; work; live and learn and what is holding back attracting and retaining more people.

Please see the Documents section below for workshop presentations that was shared with participants.

As part of next steps in Phase 4 of the project, the broader engagement will happen this Fall with the launch of an online survey that will seek input from the community to shape EDO’s priorities for the next five years.

This site will be updated throughout the project, so stay connected and help shape Mississauga’s strategic goals and priorities for a future economy.
