Engage With Us on Housing
We’re hosting three virtual community meetings to discuss key directions of Mississauga’s Official Plan Review. Join residents to help shape our future city as we discuss housing, growth, transportation and the environment.
The Official Plan Review guides growth in Mississauga, ensuring it reflects the changing needs, opportunities and aspirations of the City. Having reviewed ongoing community feedback since 2019, we are looking to confirm policy directions for the environment, transportation and growth. We will also explore your ideas on housing options.
Register here for the virtual community meetings to discuss our future city!

Thank you to everyone that participated throughout Phase 2 of the Official Plan Review engagement to confirm policy priorities for the Official Plan! Please see the Feedback Summary.
On March 8, 2021, the City’s Planning and Development Committee will be considering a staff report that summarizes the feedback received and assesses how this feedback compares to proposed policy priorities for the new Official Plan.
At our next round of engagement, we will seek your ideas on draft policy directions. This engagement will be held in the Spring of 2021.

We all have a stake in the future of our city! Thank you for your help!
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!
