Clarkson Transit Station Area Study

About the project

The Government of Ontario and their partners at Metrolinx are investing in convenient, integrated transit across the province. This includes electrification of our GO train lines. In Mississauga, the Lakeshore West GO line will undergo changes to allow for electrification and 15 min, all day two-way service.

To prepare for these changes, the City of Mississauga is developing a plan for the area surrounding the Clarkson GO station. The Clarkson Transit Station Area Study will provide a planning framework to guide future development, ensuring it supports transit and contributes to the walkability of the area. In addition, the study seeks to:

  • Gather feedback from stakeholders and the local community
  • Complete a transportation assessment
  • Explore the possibility of employment land conversions
  • Develop a land use plan and policies

The City of Mississauga is leading the Clarkson Transit Station Area Study in partnership with the Region of Peel. A consultant team led by The Planning Partnership, and supported by LEA Consulting and Cushman & Wakefield ULC, is providing specialized expertise in land use planning, policy development, urban design, transportation and economic viability.


COVID-19 Community Engagement Update: While we continue to respond to this pandemic, we are working hard to deliver essential services and projects to keep our City moving and safe. While we can’t connect in-person at this time, we still want to connect! Please find on this site the ways you can keep updated on this project’s progress and share your opinions and ideas.

    City Council will consider a report on June 17, 2020 reviewing the status of the Clarkson Transit Station Area Study and next steps. The report discusses the work completed to date and the feedback we have heard from you and how it has shaped the course of the project.

    You may link to the report and view the Council meeting on June 17, 2020 at 9:30 am through the Council Agenda.

    Following Community Workshop # 2 in 2019 and in response to your concerns, we completed an environmental compatibility study including a review of the findings of the Clarkson Airshed Study (2010).

    The report presents the findings of the environmental compatibility study in addition to providing an update on the next steps of the project.

    The environmental compatibility study makes several recommendations to address air, noise and vibration on lands south of the Clarkson GO station to determine if residential uses should be considered in this area, including requirements for further studies. Adequate air quality data is currently not available for this area to support any land use changes at this time. A requirement for a new air quality study is recommended to inform the completion of a final concept plan.
