Phase 2 of the Conserving Heritage Landscapes Project is underway

We need your help to identify Mississauga places that are unique and valuable to you.

Get Involved

The City is updating its 2005 Cultural Heritage Landscape Inventory. Cultural heritage landscapes are *areas* of cultural heritage value or interest. The review includes:

  • Evaluating the 2005 inventory for landscapes to be included or removed
  • Determining if additional cultural heritage landscapes may be added to the inventory, and
  • Examining ways to effectively manage change within and around these landscapes

Your participation and input is critical in identifying what places are unique and valuable to you, and what makes these places important. Please share your memories, opinions, drawings, images and ideas about what makes any and all of these places important and special.

Archaeological Services Inc. (ASI), SGL Planning and Design Inc. landPlan and GBCA Architects are conducting the review.


Your Opinion Matters

The City would like to hear back from the community if you think these sites are significant? The City is considering making a policy or even a by-law to protect these areas. We want to know if you value these landscapes.
