City of Mississauga Provides Programs to Assist with Impact of Elementary Teachers’ Strike Action

Dec 19, 2012

Mayor McCallion: Statement to the Media

Yesterday, the City of Mississauga held one-day camps at Burnhamthorpe, Erin Meadows, Frank McKechnie, Malton, Meadowvale, Mississauga Valley and South Common Community Centres in response to concerns from the community and parents looking for options and a place for their children during the school disruption.  City staff provided various camp options including full-day and drop-in programs to meet the needs of parents who had no other options.

"It is most unfortunate that the one day strike organized by the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario greatly impacted the parents and students of our city," said Mayor Hazel McCallion.  "I hope no one has lost their job because they had to take a day off work to care for their children."

As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 741,000 residents and more than 54,000 businesses, including more than 60 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focussing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money and maintaining infrastructure.
