As Mississauga continues to evolve, so does our Official Plan.

The City’s Official Plan policies address important parts of city-building that affect everyone who lives and works in Mississauga, including transportation, housing, culture and heritage, the environment, and the economy.

The Official Plan addresses things like:

  • where housing, industry, offices, shops, and roads should go
  • which services and amenities (e.g. parks, schools, transit) are needed and where they will be located
  • what parts of the city will be the focus for growth and what it will look like
  • what must be considered for growth and development

We’re reviewing the existing Official Plan to ensure it reflects the changing needs, opportunities and aspirations of our city. The review process will:

We will also explore your ideas on housing options.

  • Research Briefs

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    We have “Research Briefs” to share with you! We hope these are helpful in understanding the key topics to guide our future conversations with you and future policies for the Official Plan.

    The six policy themes were identified in our report to the Planning and Development Committee on March 9, 2020.

    You can find the Briefs here:


    Each Brief talks about what is important in planning for our future city. COVID-19 has brought focus to some of these core city building matters such as the need for more space for people to gather, play, walk and cycle; more options for housing; and keeping jobs “local”.

    We have also created a detailed technical appendix which extracts some of the key goals, actions and policy directions that will shape changes to the Official Plan (from provincial policies, Region of Peel studies, City of Mississauga Master Plans, etc.). There have been a lot of technical policy and planning studies undertaken to get to this point! You may have already contributed to one or more of these through the related community engagement processes at the time.

    Now, we are moving forward from this strong foundational work to map new policies where needed.

    We look forward to starting our conversations with you in Fall 2020!
