Story of M

Your story can shape our city.

The City of Mississauga wants to capture Mississauga’s entire story. Everything from our early Indigenous roots to present day newcomer diversity. The Story of M will collect these stories and use them to influence exhibits and programming at the Museums and how heritage is reflected in the city.

The Museums of Mississauga will be going across Mississauga in an effort to collect, listen to and share stories with residents.

This information will be collected and reviewed to help define and better reflect the landscape of Mississauga.
