Live Streaming: Watch Your City Government at Work

Apr 17, 2013

Beginning today, General Committee meetings now stream live online from the Council Chamber on the RogersTV website.

This new service allows citizens to watch General Committee as well as City Council meetings via a link from the City of Mississauga website to the RogersTV website.

"By offering this live streaming and access to the proceedings 24 hours a day, seven days a week, citizens are able to access information when and how they want - on their own schedule," said Crystal Greer, director, Legislative Services & Clerk. "We believe that this will strengthen citizens' understanding of how their municipal government works." 

City Council and General Committee meetings will continue to take place Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m. To watch the live streaming, visit mississauga.ca/videos.

Past meetings of City Council and General Committee are also available for citizens to view as archives at mississauga.ca/videos, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at a time and place convenient to them.

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.
