“Together, with support from our sponsors and the Canada Day Committee of Council, the City is able to offer a free all day event highlighting exciting activities and impressive performances for the whole family to enjoy,” says Carolyn Parrish, Ward 6 Councillor and Canada Day Steering Committee Chair. “In addition, with help from the community, the City is also proud to support local charities like the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Peel and the Mississauga Hockey League Play-More Hockey Program."
