  • Why can’t we find different ways to raise more revenue?

    15 days ago

    Only sixty per cent of all services and programs we deliver are funded by the property tax. We receive revenues from other sources, such as user fees, developer contributions and gas tax.

    The Ontario Municipal Act limits how the City can generate new non-tax revenue. The City of Mississauga and other Ontario municipalities have asked for changes to the Act to give local governments more revenue-generating options. As a result of recent changes to provincial legislation, Mississauga City Council approved the implementation of a four per cent Municipal Accommodation Tax effective April 1, 2018.


  • Why isn’t the City finding efficiencies?

    15 days ago

    We challenge ourselves to find efficiencies each year. The City has saved more than $52 million since 2009 by innovating and improving processes. Through our commitment to continuous improvement, we have adopted Lean and other tools to improve the way the City works.

    For example, by making changes such as making our Active Guide an online tool, eliminating MiWay paper passes and switching to LED street lighting, the City is finding efficiencies and new ways to save money.
