Help shape our city - Downtown Strategy


About the project

The City of Mississauga is creating a downtown for today and tomorrow. To do this, we’re developing a new guiding document called the Downtown Strategy. This Strategy will build on the success of the Downtown Core and provide direction for the future. It will reflect what people want to see – a vibrant place to live, work, learn, be entertained, raise a family and most of all, choose to be.

The Downtown Strategy seeks to set a vision and plan for Downtown Mississauga by answering the following questions:

  • What are the Downtown’s strengths?
  • Where are the opportunities? (e.g. to make it easy to live, work, play, shop, gather and learn in the Downtown)
  • What are our needs and aspirations for the Downtown?
  • What is our vision for the future and what actions will get us there?

The Strategy will build on the Downtown21 Master Plan (2010) - a plan that first outlined a vision to transform the Downtown from "suburban to urban" and laid the foundation for the current downtown core. For more information on the Downtown21 Master Plan, please visit mississauga.ca/downtown.

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.

Whether you live, learn, work or play in Downtown Mississauga, get involved and have your say on what our downtown can be.

    As part of Phase 2 of the Downtown Strategy, we're launching the Downtown Movement Plan (DMP). The DMP will identify the transportation infrastructure and policies required to support and guide the continued development of the Downtown Core in two phases:

    DMP Phase 1:

    • Study what works and what doesn't in the Downtown's transportation system today.

    DMP Phase 2:

    • Identify and evaluate ways to make getting to, from, and around the Downtown easier and more sustainable. These solutions will improve all ways of travelling: walking, cycling, taking transit, and driving

    Throughout Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the DMP there will be opportunities for public engagement and to share your feedback on transportation and mobility in the Downtown.

    Please see the study's Notice of Commencement and Virtual Public Engagement. The first round of public consultation will be held via a virtual on-demand meeting. It will be available between August 17, 2020 and September 21, 2020.

    This page will continue to be your one stop to learn more about both the Downtown Strategy and Downtown Movement Plan, share feedback, ask questions and stay notified of any project updates.
