Cultural Heritage Landscape Project

The study’s second phase has officially commenced!

On May 6th, 2019 the City and the consultant team facilitated a public open house where the study’s next phase process, timeline and list of preliminary landscapes and features was presented.

As in Phase 1, your ongoing participation is critical to identifying what places are unique and valuable to you, and what makes these places important. Please return to this page throughout the summer to:

  • Check out the study’s second phase list of landscapes and features
  • Share your memories, opinions and ideas on what makes each place special
  • Complete the study’s on-line survey

Get Involved

We experience place in Mississauga through its many cultural heritage landscapes like:

  • The Credit River valley
  • Historic villages
  • Early transportation routes
  • Signature neighbourhoods and campuses
  • Former farmsteads and estates
  • Gardens and parks

These landscapes reflect Mississauga’s past and present as a backdrop to the city. In 2005, Mississauga developed an inventory of these landscapes. With the City’s growth, the Inventory is being updated and ways to manage these landscapes are being re-examined. 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.

Is there a cultural heritage landscape missing from the Inventory?

Submit new cultural heritage landscape suggestions here. (Deadline: September 30, 2019)

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

  • The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete.

    We experience neighbourhoods, communities, and areas as unique and memorable through the ways that buildings and streets connect with surrounding landforms, watercourses, and vegetation. The interaction of these elements creates a ‘sense’ of place. Topography, ground-cover and tree canopy also define the quality of these places. Some of these areas are important and significant to Mississauga’s culture and heritage.

With the city’s growth, the Inventory is now being updated and ways to manage these landscapes are being re-examined. The second phase of the Conserving Heritage Landscapes project includes reviewing the following features that were identified in the 2005 Cultural Landscape Inventory and identifying the key attributes and characteristics that make these places unique and valued by individuals and communities.

    Understanding the elements that make a place unique and important help define appropriate tools and approaches for managing them. Please help us identify what makes Mississauga’s Cultural Heritage Landscapes unique by commenting on any or all of the study areas: 

    • Farms and Estates
    • Industrial
    • Parks and Open Spaces
    • Campuses and Golf Courses
